Towards 10 Gigabits Per Second: Lehigh Group Reports Best Threshold Values For Near-infrared Range Lasers
Research at Lehigh has made high-performance, vertical cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) produced with vapor deposition and capable of operating with a 13000-nm wavelength a step closer to reality. Nelson Tansu, 26, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at Lehigh, and his colleagues have reported the best threshold values to date for near-infrared-range (with an emission wavelength of 1300-nm), indium-gallium-arsenide-nitride (InGaAsN) lasers that emit from a quantum well. "Using dilute-nitride grown on a gallium-arsenide base," says Tansu, "it is much easier to make the high-performance reflectors that are critical to achieving high-performance VCSELs. We accomplished this by using MOCVD, which is also known as MOVPE [Metal-Organic Vapor Phase Epitaxy]."

HS Sidelines: Champion Chinn Chooses Lehigh

Trevor Chinn won’t leave Canandaigua Academy without the state wrestling championship he chased for years. Or without a place to wrestle after he graduates.

Chinn, ranked fourth nationally among 140-pounders by Wrestling USA Magazine, also considered attending West Virginia, Columbia and the State University at Buffalo, but the chance to become a Mountain Hawk was too tempting. Lehigh is third in the latest national team rankings and is led by former Olympic coach Greg Strobel, whose assistants also have credentials that are difficult to match.
