VI Systems, UC Santa Barbara and DTU demo 1060nm VCSEL link at 30 Gbit/s
VI Systems, University of California Santa Barbara and the Technical University of Denmark demonstrated an optical data communication link at 30 Gbit/s with a 1060 nm vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL). The results will be presented at the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) on September 22, 2014.
BERLIN, Germany, July 8, 2014
VI Systems GmbH, a leader in ultra-high speed components for data communications, the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB), and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) demonstrated an optical link for data communication using a 1060 nm vertical cavity surface emitting (VCSEL) transmitter and a VI Systems high speed receiver module R40-1300 which is specified for the wavelength range from 900-1350nm.
The 1060nm VCSEL light source is a bottom emitting, highly-strained 1060 nm quantum well VCSEL developed at Professor Larry Coldren’s group at UCSB, at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The receiver is designed for data rates of up to 40 Gbit/s and includes VI Systems’ transimpedance amplifier T40-150C080 packaged in fiber coupled receiver optical subassembly (ROSA).
System analysis and data transmission experiments are performed at Professor Tafur Monroy’s lab at DTU Fotonik-Department of Photonics Engineering.
The results of the cooperation between UC Santa Barbara, DTU and VI Systems will be presented at the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) in Cannes, France from September 21 – 25, 2014.
