Author: Dr Dave Thomas, SPTS' Senior Director Etch Products.
While Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) have been used in data communications for over 20 years, there are a host of emerging applications that are boosting demand for VCSEL production and performance. These include less well-known applications such as infrared illumination/heating and atomic clocks, to better-known proximity sensing for automotive safety, high-resolution video display, and gesture/facial recognition.
This article gives a broad overview of some of these applications driving demand for etch and deposition technologies used in the manufacturing of VCSEL structures on compound semiconductor wafers.
