VCSELs are semiconductor laser diodes that meet the stringent requirements for process control and reliability, but with a surface emitting geometry that allows testing at various stages throughout the manufacturing process for controlling quality and performance. The Oclaro VCSEL team has been leading the commercialization of VCSELs for demanding industrial and consumer applications and has accumulated industry-leading expertise in all aspects of VCSEL design and manufacturing.

Oclaro’s Growing VCSEL Business
Oclaro VCSELs are currently powering high-volume consumer electronics devices such as computer mice and finger navigation engines for mobile devices. In addition, VCSEL-based optical cables are emerging as a replacement for the existing electrical cable technology in mainstream computing devices because electrical solutions are approaching their practical limits for speed and length. VCSEL-based optical interconnects, on the other hand, do not have these same limitations because they transmit data using light instead of electricity. The achieved 100M milestone exemplifies Oclaro’s leading position as a laser diode supplier into these emerging volume markets.
