Turn-oo transients in current-modulated weakly-index-guided vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) are analyzed by using a model that takes into account all the transverse modes supported by the waveguide. Turn-oo transients strength is maximum for the current at which the VCSEL enters the multi-transverse-mode regime. Their strength signiicatively decreases for the multi-mode regime and then operation in several modes is beneecial to avoiding turn-oo transients when modulating the… CONTINUE READING
