Described is 40Gbit/s transmission over 2km at 850nm achieved using a singlemode photonic crystal fibre (PCF) and a singlemode vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL). The group velocity dispersion of the PCF was -62.8ps/nm/km, which was 35ps/nm/km less than that of a conventional step-index fibre at 850nm. Error-free transmission was successfully achieved.
