Abstract

With the separation of optical and current apertures, photonic crystal vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers can reach a 3-dB small-signal modulation bandwidth of >18 GHz while lasing in the fundamental mode. Because of reduced chromatic dispersion, such devices enable error-free transmission over 1-km OM4 multimode fiber at a data rate of 25 Gb/s and operating at a current density of 5.4 kA/cm2. This can potentially lead to a laser source that is useful for rack-to-rack transmissions in large data centers and potentially long device lifetime.
