We describe a compact, ultralow noise, and high-power semiconductor laser implemented in a high performances wideband externally modulated optical link. The laser is based on a vertical external cavity surface emitting laser (VECSEL) designed for high-power and low-noise operation. Thanks to a specific design of the gain chip, the half-VCSEL, based on a metamorphic Bragg mirror and a report on a copper substrate, an optical power of 110 mW is obtained at 1.55 μm in the single frequency regime… CONTINUE READING
