VCSELs, cutting edge technology

VCSEL is an acronym that stands for Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser: a vertical-cavity laser diode that emits through the surface. After appearing in the late 1970s, VCSEL technology was first used in the 1990s in data transmission. However, since the early 2000s, this technology has been found in many everyday objects, such as laser printers and computer mice. Many applications now use VCSELs: automotive radar, facial … Continue reading VCSELs, cutting edge technology
