Paper Abstract

In 1996, Honeywell was the first company to commercialize VCSEL technology, and today it is the world's largest VCSEL component supplier. This paper will focus on the aspects of VCSEL manufacture that are important to maintain highly reliable and producible components. For current VCSEL products, we will address the evolution of VCSEL reliability and its effect on performance in data communications systems. New applications in both the data communications and sensor markets are being enabled by the VCSEL technology. This paper will also discuss new VCSEL structures, packages and wavelengths that are being commercialized by Honeywell to address these emerging markets.
