AlGaInP-based visible vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSEL) fabricated by selective oxidation of AlGaAs have demonstrated enhanced performance in the form of lower thresholds and shorter wavelength operation. Recent improvements in the performance of both types of AlGaInP visible VCSEL structures are brought about by new heterostructure designs. Prototype systems utilizing AlGaInP visible VCSELs have been evaluated for a number of applications.
