The characterization of components for optical interconnect technology presents a unique opportunity for Martin Marietta Laboratory - Syracuse (MML) and Rome Laboratory (RL) to expand on their collaborative research in photonics. Under a pending agreement, MML and RL propose to evaluate optical components and related technology that have potential applications for avionics subsystems on aircraft, high-speed communications between supercomputers, and high-resolution digital television. This paper describes the evaluation of one such optical component, the vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL). These VCSELs are employed in the directly modulated transmitters of an optical interconnect being developed by the Optoelectronics Technology Consortium (OETC) to relieve the inevitable bottleneck created by the advancing computer clock speeds and conductor densities.
