Up to 9Gbit/s data transmission with monolithically integrated VCSELs and PIN photodiodes

With the increasing demand for high-speed optical interconnection in mobile systems like cars and airplanes, vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) offer an alternative solution to the well-established red LEDs used in media-oriented systems transport (MOST) networks based on polymer optical fiber [1]. In order to find a compromise between the… CONTINUE READING
