Advances in VCSELs for communication and sensing
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2011
The vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) has become a light source of great importance for industrial and consumer applications. This includes communication and sensing in particular, where dynamics and optical mode behavior are key performance characteristics. This tutorial treats relevant VCSEL basics, performance requirements and recent progress towards higher speed, higher single mode power and polarization control.
