Abstract : Vertical cavity surface ernitting lasers (VCSELs) have improved rapidly during the last few months. VCSELs have been demonstrated with wall plug efficiencies as high as 50%. All improvements such as these, contribute to the development of UV, blue and green VCSELs, since the basic infra-red VCSEL is fundamental to our doubling scheme. These new structures have larger optical field densities then any existing VCSELs, due to reduced mirror resistances and reduced optical losses.
