news item -- longwave VCSELs

significantly important issue for 10GbE development, from Photonics Online:

1) Direct electrical pumping powers 1.3 mm VCSEL TECHNICAL NEWS:
One-step growth process and direct electrical pumping open the doors to
the telecom market for a 1.3 mm vertical cavity surface-emitting laser.
Potentially more manufacturable and economical than Gore's 1.3 um VCSEL that is
optically pumped by an electrically-pumped 850-nm VCSEL wafer-bonded to the
device, the Sandia VCSEL has the potentially to significantly affect datacom by
allowing it to leverage technology developed for long haul networks. Yvonne
