Title:  VCSEL-based Multimode Fiber Optical Links for High Capacity Interconnects

Committee: 

Dr. Ralph, Advisor

Dr. Klein, Chair

Dr. Chang

Abstract:

The objective of the proposed research is to develop and demonstrate new system archetypes for increasing optical interconnect (server-to-server) data rate capacity in data center and high performance computing applications. This proposal will overview the main impairments of a vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) based link, noise analysis of VCSELs and the impact of fiber on noise, advanced modulation formats (PAM-4), optical power penalties associated with faster line rates, transmitter equalization, and few tap transmitter pulse shaping.
