Progress in VCSEL-Based Parallel Links

  • Daniel M. Kuchta
Chapter
Part of the Springer Series in Optical Sciences book series (SSOS, volume 166)

Abstract

This chapter covers most aspects of VCSEL-based parallel optical links during the period of 2000–2010, a period of tremendous advancement in this field both in research and in commercial deployment. Section 16.1 introduces the topic. Commercial activities are covered in Sect. 16.2. Section 16.3 covers research activities in this field. Deployment of these technologies in large systems, supercomputers and test beds is discussed in Sect. 16.4. Advances in multi-fiber, multicore fiber and multi-fiber connectors for parallel links is the topic of Sect. 16.5. Section 16.6 discusses reliability for parallel links and its application to large systems. Finally, Sect. 16.7 concludes the chapter with future applications for VCSEL-based parallel links.
