LD03–Modulation response of VCSELs: a physics-based simulation approach

A preliminary study of the dynamic behaviour of a GaAs/AlGaAs 850 nm VCSEL is presented, with the focus on the small-signal analysis and in particular on the optical amplitude modulation response. Simulations are performed with our in-house quantum-corrected one-dimensional drift-diffusion code D1ANA, updated to perform the AC analysis. The -3 dB cutoff frequency of the device is extracted as a function of VCSEL bias current and compared with experimental results.
