Paper Abstract

We present a detailed device characterization of a series of optically pumped VCSELs, emphasizing in particular a comparison with electrically pumped devices. We conclude that fundamental device parameters such as threshold pump power, input-output efficiency and polarization behavior do not depend on the pumping scheme.
