The objective of this project is to conduct fundamental research of a new Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser VCSELtechnology, specifically a High Heat Flow Cavity approach. The High Heat Flow Cavity VCSELs are expected to bring new capabilities to demanding applications requiring highly reliable, high-speed arrays that may be required to operate reliably in extreme temperature environments. Commercial space communication providers, for example, have these requirements for commercial space satellites and other military platforms. Low cost, higher efficiency laser sources would benefit many consumer applications, including medical applications, industrial applications, high-speed communications, and scientific research applications.
