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.

HSIC Group has demonstrated a 12.5 Gb/s non-return-to-zero error-free data transmission at 2.6 K to the error detector at 295 K. It is a viable solution for an energy-efficient optical data link from 4-K cryo-computing to the end-user at room temperature. The laser emission wavelengths and the related junction temperatures at cryogenic temperatures are also studied.
