PhD project: Electrically pumped MEMS VCSEL

The optical coherence market has experienced a large growth in the last years. One branch of this technology is swept source OCT where a laser with rapid wavelength tuning is required. Vertical cavity surface emission lasers (VCSEL) modulated using MEMS are good light sources due to a long modulation range and fast tuning. My project focuses on the further improvement of the 1060-nm MEMS VCSEL devices that would allow the development of low cost ophthalmic OCT applications.
