During the current reporting period effort was concentrated on verifying the high speed characteristics of the waveguide modulators, and preparing to produce VCSEL arrays. The waveguide modulators were found to exceed the speed requirements for the link. The speed of the transmitter will therefore be limited by the speed of the driver circuit and the image matching between the driver and the modulator. Progress in the area of VCSELs included the elimination of the special contact layer, and an improved understanding of the factors limiting the ohmic contact resistance. During the remainder of the program we will package the waveguide modulators into a transmitter module with the driver chips and measure DC performance over temperature. We will also evaluate the board level interconnect demonstration. in particular we will examine the connector tolerance to misalignment
