We report on an optical fiber transmission system employing a vertical cavity surface emitting laser and an integrated p‐i‐n/metal–semiconductor field effect transistor (MESFET) photoreceiver. The surface emitting laser utilizes proton implantation for current confinement and has a small signal bandwidth of 10 GHz. The p‐i‐n/MESFET photoreceiver has a bandwidth of 4.5 GHz. A transmission experiment using the vertical cavity surface emitting lasers source and the p‐i‐n/MESFET photoreceiver was carried out and error‐free operation was demonstrated. © 1994 American Institute of Physics.
