PCSELs Proven To Be Faster Than Other Lasers

News

Initial tests show that Vector Photonics' Photonic Crystal Surface Emitting Laser is faster than VCSEL and DFB laser equivalents

A paper presented at the Compound Semiconductor International Virtual Conference on 12th April, 2021, reveals that Vector Photonics' PCSEL technology is capable of significantly faster speeds than equivalent VCSEL or EELs.

The paper by David Childs, director of product development at Vector Photonics, describes the first speed measurement of the company's PCSEL technology. Childs confirms that the speed aligns with the company's device modelling and he concludes that a PCSEL, with a smaller area and optimised for speed, has the potential to be over two times faster than a VCSEL equivalent and three times faster than a DFB laser equivalent.

The presentation is timetabled for 12.55 to 13.10 at the CS Conference, with registration available on the link: https://onlinesummit.angel-tech.net/

Childs is co-inventor of the Vector Photonic's PCSEL technology. Prior to becoming director of product development at Vector, he was developing laser research at the University of Glasgow, in the Electronics and Nanoscale Engineering division of the James Watt School of Engineering. His industrial experience also includes commercial laser development at Marconi Optical Components.



AngelTech Live III: Watch the virtual event ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Live III was broadcast live on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and features online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

The event covered the whole spectrum of key developments affecting the compound semiconductor industry. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. This was considered a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

With 3 interactive sessions over 1 day AngelTech Live III proved to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
