Paper Abstract

We present the monolithic design, fabrication and properties of 850nm wavelength AlGaAs-GaAs-based transceiver chips with a stacked layer structure of a VCSEL and a PIN photodetector. Bidirectional data transmission via a single, two-side butt-coupled multimode fiber (MMF) is thus enabled. The approach aims at a miniaturization of transceiver chips in order to ensure compatibility with standard MMFs with core diameters of 50 and 62.5μm used predominantly in premises networks. These chips are supposed to be well suited for low-cost and compact half- and full-duplex interconnection at Gbit/s data rates over distances of a few hundred meters.
