20-Gb/s Modulation of Silicon-Integrated Short-Wavelength Hybrid-Cavity VCSELs
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2016

We investigate the dynamics of silicon-integrated 850-nm-wavelength hybrid-cavity vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs). The VCSELs consist of a GaAs-based half-VCSEL attached to a dielectric distributed Bragg reflector on a silicon substrate using ultra-thin divinylsiloxane-bis-benzocyclobutene adhesive bonding. A 5-µm oxide aperture diameter VCSEL, with a small signal modulation bandwidth of 11 GHz, supports data transmission at bit rates up to 20 Gb/s. The modulation bandwidth and the large signal modulation characteristics are found to be impaired by the high thermal impedance.
