An integrated optoelectronic chip pair, which can transmit and receive optical signals simultaneously, is proposed in this Letter. The design and optimization of its key structure, the vertical cavity surface emitting laser’s distributed Bragg reflector, are presented. Analysis is also done for its influence on the integrated chip’s performance. Moreover, the chip pair’s performance under dynamic conditions is analyzed. Their 3 dB modulation bandwidths are higher than 10 GHz, and their 3 dB photo-response bandwidths are around 23 GHz. Their applications will further improve the performances of the optical interconnects.
