Abstract

Vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) are promising for use in optical communication, optical interconnection, optical parallel processing, etc. However, in contrast to edge-emitting lasers, VCSELs have two linear orthogonal polarization states that can share the output power [1]. When the polarization direction changes with an increasing injection current, a large partitioning noise is produced [2]. Thus, it is vital to control the polarization to enable use of VCSELs in polarization-sensitive systems and high-speed data transmission systems with low bit-error rates.
