    Researchers Slow Down Laser Light, Deliver Control to Break Power and Speed Limits

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    George Washington University (GWU) researchers have combined multiple transverse coupled cavities to develop a new vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL). The cavities in the laser system enhance the laser’s optical feedback capabilities, helping the laser demonstrate record-fast temporal bandwidth, the researchers reported.

    VCSELs, a class of semiconductor laser diodes accompanying a monolithic resonator that emits light in a direction perpendicular to the surface of a chip, are comparatively energy-efficient and high-speed optical interconnects in data centers and supercomputers. VSCELs are compact and deliver high optoelectronic performance. As miniaturized lasers, VSCELs function as an optical source in high-speed,…
