    Performance of modern oxide-confined (OC) vertical-cavity surface-emitting diode lasers (VCSEL s) is more sensitive to the construction details than in the case of other VCSEL s. In particular, a stable single-fundamental-mode operation is difficult to be achieved in these VCSEL s especially in...

    The vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) is the most suitable light source for many optoelectronic applications because of its planar nature. The design of large VCSEL arrays requires accurate modeling of device characteristics. In this paper, we present a thermal model to analyze the...
