TRUMPF introducing longer-wavelength VCSELs for datacoms
In booth 2423 at the Optical Fiber Conference (OFC 2022) in San Diego, USA (8–10 March), TRUMPF Photonic Components GmbH of Ulm, Germany (part of the TRUMPF Group) – which manufactures vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) and photodiodes for the consumer electronics, datacoms, industrial sensing, heating and automotive markets – is to show its existing 850nm product portfolio and its future roadmap for longer wavelengths.
The company is hence introducing VCSELs with wavelengths above 940nm, addressing the market requirements for broader temperature ranges, higher product robustness and service life.

TRUMPF has also just completed its first multi-million-Euro investment tranche in its production site in Ulm, in order to upgrade its manufacturing platform and to support further business growth. The firm says that it is building on more than 20 years of experience in the market with the strategy of not only designing standard modules but also customized solutions for high-speed and high-performance VCSELs and photodiodes.
