Abstract:

Objective Develop a low-cost, monolithic dense WDM technology for multi-Gbs LANs consisting of multi-wavelength VCSEL arrays 1x16 with local wavelength regulation, and an add-drop multiplexer technology for wavelength selection. Approaches and Goals develop a quasi-planar single-growth technique for achieving multiwavelength VCSEL and REPD arrays demonstrate local wavelength tuning to regulate the wavelengths of individual VCSELs demonstrate multi-channel WDM transmission at 2.5 Gbschannel achieve a 16 channel WDM VCSEL array with a channel spacing of approx. 2-3 nanometers 40 Gbs aggregate throughput monolithic ADM technology for wavelength selection.
