GaIn(N)As micro-lasers for datacommunication

This project aims at designing, developing, testing and implementation new coherent light sources for datacommunication systems. The research will be conductedd at hte University of Ghent and at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, on three levels: the material level, new structures (Special Vertical Cavity Serface Emitting Lasers) and new specialty mechanisms. It is purpose of the promotors to reach efficienties and prices that are competitive with the present-day Inp side emitting laser diodes.
