Abstract

The 1.31-μm AlGaInAs vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers achieved efficient single-mode (SM) continous-wave lasing at temperatures up to 120 °C, with 2.0-mW output power and 31% slope efficiency, as well as multimode (MM) lasing with up to 9-mW output power and up to 39% slope efficiency. High-speed modulation at data rates up to 10 Gb/s and transmission through different lengths of SM and MM fiber are demonstrated.
