A 71 Gb/s NRZ Modulated 850 nm VCSEL-based Optical Link
Journal article, 2015

We report error free (BER<10-12) operation of a directly NRZ modulated 850 nm VCSEL link operating to 71 Gb/s. This is the highest error free modulation rate for a directly modulated laser of any type. The optical link consists of a 130 nm BiCMOS driver IC with 2-tap feed-forward equalization, a wide bandwidth 850 nm VCSEL, a surface illuminated GaAs PIN photodiode and a 130 nm BiCMOS receiver IC.
