A widely tunable vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) with an integrated mirror has been externally modulated in transmission experiments demonstrating error-free transmission over 50 km in singlemode optical fibre at 10 Gbit/s over a 30 nm tuning range. A penalty of 0.2 dB was measured when compared with a tunable external cavity laser which was due to residual membrane movement in the unpackaged VCSEL.
