Coherent optical coupling in VCSEL arrays introduces novel and desirable behaviors that can manifest themselves in many ways. We explore some of these behaviors using common characterization techniques but using large datasets, and show how we use computational data analysis methods to analyze datasets in an automated and scalable manner.
