  author={Jim A. Tatum and David L. Smith and J. R. Guenter and Ralph Johnson Honeywell}
The high speed characteristics of Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) for use in modern high bandwidth fiber optic networks is presented. An equivalent circuit model based on microwave network analyzer S 11 measurements is developed. The dynamic operation of multi-transverse mode VCSELs is also investigated. Experimentally, a laser with two orthogonally polarized modes is examined. We show that each of the transverse laser modes may have significantly different rise and fall times… CONTINUE READING
