  10. Heterogeneous VCSEL Array Integration with Silicon Substrate

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to heterogeneously integrate a large array (64x64) of vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) with a silicon substrate. This work takes advantage of the recently developed applique technique that quasi-monolithically integrates VCSELs with foundry processed CMOS chips. This development work will concentrate on obtaining yields of 100% for VCSELs in the array while maintaining t ...
