Modulation response of VCSEL with lateral loss effects

Research output: Chapter in book / Conference proceedingConference article published in proceeding or bookAcademic researchpeer-review


Second harmonic distortion (SHD) exists in both edge-emitting devices and VCSELs. However, the distortion caused by lateral loss may be more so in VCSELs because of its smaller core size. The effect of the lateral field confinement factor and the lateral loss due to diffraction on harmonic distortion when the laser device is under small signal modulation is demonstrated.
