In this contribution, we bring forward and compare the polarization switching (PS) dynamics and the polarization modulation characteristics of gain- and index-guided VCSELs. We then discuss the steady-state and dynamic characteristics of both types of VCSELs. Finally we focus on the polarization modulation limit and the average mode hopping frequency, which both scale over 8 orders of magnitude when the switching current is varied from just above threshold up to 2 times the threshold current.
