VERTILAS GmbH develops and manufactures innovative laser diodes for gas sensing (TDLAS - Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy), optical communications and customer specific applications in the NIR (Near Infrared) range. VERTILAS long wavelength VCSELs (Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser) are available from 1.3 µm to 2.3 µm with a wide range of packaging options, incl. cooled and uncooled TO packages, as well as LC-TOSAs and pigtails. VERTILAS VCSELs are specifically designed and manufactured to offer excellent single mode performance. For sensing and spectroscopy markets, Vertilas' standard product portfolio offers VCSELs for 12 main wavelengths and additional wavelengths can be manufactured on demand. VERTILAS laser diodes offer a wide and fast tuning range to enable rapid and precise measurements for ppm and ppb sensitivity levels. For communications applications, Vertilas develops and manufactures VCSELs for 1.3 µm, 1.49 µm and 1.55 µm. These lasers feature 10.3 Gbps and up to 40 Gbps transmission performance. Furthermore, for customer specific applications, Vertilas can offer 1D and 2D VCSEL arrays. Vertilas VCSEL technology enables system designers to reduce power consumption by 50% and more compared with other lasers technologies.

  VERTILAS GmbH, with its headquarters in Unterschleissheim (just north of Munich), was founded in December 2001 by associates of the Semiconductor Technology Group at the Walter Schottky Institute of the Technical University of Munich.
