Paper Abstract

Honeywell continues to be the world’s leading supplier of VCSELs operating at 850 nm. This paper will cover new commercial application areas for 850-nm VCSELs, and will present new findings in VCSEL reliability science. In particular, newly-developing applications drive requirements for ever more reliable VCSEL design and fabrication, and for improvements in controls for ESD (electrostatic discharge) and EOS (electrical overstress) at manufacturing facilities both for VCSEL components and for higher-level assemblies employing VCSEL components. Honeywell efforts toward improvement of reliability and toward reduction of ESD exposure are described, as is an alternative approach to improving reliability of systems containing VCSELs without compromising their performance.
