Paper Abstract

980 nm vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser based on sub-monolayer growth of quantum dots show at 25 and 85°C for 20 Gb/s without current adjustment clearly open eyes and error free operation with bit error rates better than 10-12. For these multimode lasers the small signal modulation bandwidth decreases only from 15 GHz at 25°C to 13 GHz at 85°C. Single mode devices demonstrate at 20°C a small signal modulation bandwidth of 16.6 GHz with 0.8 mW optical output power and a record high modulation current efficiency factor of 19 GHz/mA1/2.
