Paper Abstract

In this paper, vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) with pillar structure which has potential applications in optical communication and optical interconnect is theoretically analyzed, the calculation model that used to discuss the modal performance of cylinder VCSEL with oxidized aperture is established by using vector field model. The numerical simulations show oscillating wavelength and threshold gain against inner and outer radius of laser, the layer refractive index and pair number of Bragg mirror, thickness, position and oxidized material’s refractive index of oxidized aperture, in detail. According to the standard that oscillating wavelength should approach to the designed one and threshold gain should be as low as possible, we give the appropriate range of parameters discussed in the paper.
