We report on the design and implementation of a novel multiple-wavelength optical data link for low-cost multimode wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) local-area network applications. This link utilizes a monolithically integrated multiple-wavelength vertical-cavity laser array and a narrow-band resonant-cavity photodetector array to transmit multiple channels of information simultaneously via a single multimode fiber. A detailed analysis on wavelength tuning and threshold characteristics of different laser cavity designs is presented. Theoretical results are compared to our experimental data. On the receiver part, both Schottky and p-i-n photodetectors with a single- or coupled-cavity structure are discussed. A novel p-i-n resonant-cavity photodetector design with a partially oxidized front mirror for linewidth control is proposed. Moreover, we also demonstrate preliminary measurements on the optical link built with our multiple-wavelength vertical-cavity laser array and photodetector array. Finally, the feasibility of constructing a multiwavelength optical data link with a single dual-core multimode fiber and an integrated laser/detector array is evaluated
