Vector Photonics Characterises PCSEL Performance
Optical performance test results for new1310nm PCSEL show an SMSR (side-mode-suppression ratio) of 40dB
The optical performance of Vector Photonics' 1310nm PCSELs has been successfully characterised, demonstrating a 40dB SMSR, as the technology continues to be commercialised.
This demonstrates that these surface emitting lasers have achieved a key figure of merit for their performance, on a par with current, market-leading datacoms laser technology.
David Childs, director of product development at Vector Photonics, said: “A 40dB result matches incumbent laser techn
The Vector Photonics 1310nm PCSEL (Photonic Crystal Surface Emitting Laser) has been developed as part of the Innovate UK-funded, LOCAL project. The test results demonstrate that the laser should meet the industry specifications for the network processing architecture of next generation, hyperscale data centres - its target market.
