HSIC Demonstrates Superconducting-Processor-Modulated VCSELs for 4K High-Speed Optical Data Link

HSIC group has reported the first demonstration of high-speed optical data link from superconducting processor to room temperature based on the Cryogenic oxide-VCSEL for up to 20 Gb/s NRZ. The cryogenic VCSEL is optically coupled with OM4 fiber at 3-4 Kelvin. The oxide-VCSELs for cryogenic operation are very reliable over 15 thermal cycles between 2.6K and RT for 6-month period.
