Abstract

A detailed parametric investigation of the modal performance of single-mode, single-polarization vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) loaded with a micro spiral phase plate is reported. This work stems from a recent publication, where the structure is technologically implemented and tested. Starting from the actual structure parameters, we investigate by VELM, our in-house fully 3-dimensional and vectorial Vcsel ELectroMagnetic solver, the features of such a novel approach to produce orbital angular momentum modes, in view of next-generation high-capacity optical communications.
