Tunable external cavity diode lasers by Cunyun Ye

By Cunyun Ye

This is often the 1st publication on tunable exterior hollow space semiconductor diode lasers, supplying an updated survey at the physics, expertise, and function of largely acceptable coherent radiation resources of tunable exterior hollow space diode lasers. the aim is to supply a radical account of the state of the art of tunable exterior hollow space diode lasers that's completed by way of combining this account with uncomplicated strategies of semiconductor diode lasers and its tunability with monolithic constructions. the sensible and available info during this quantity will let the reader to check exterior hollow space diode laser, to accumulate the platforms of exterior hollow space diode laser in addition to to advance complex platforms for his or her specific purposes. This booklet will attract undergraduate and graduate scholars, scientists and engineers alike.

Newton's Optical Writings: A Guided Study (Masterworks of Discovery)

Isaac Newton’s vintage writings on mild and optics are the center of this quantity within the sequence, Masterworks of Discovery: Guided experiences of significant Texts in technology. The cutting edge sequence is aimed toward making the good works of clinical discovery obtainable to scholars and lay readers.  for every quantity, exotic historians of technology have rigorously chosen unique texts (or extracts) and observed them with interpretive remark, explanatory notes, and bio-bibliographical fabric.

Electron Microscopy in Heterogeneous Catalysis

Catalysis is without doubt one of the most vital applied sciences within the business global, controlling greater than ninety% of business chemical methods and crucial for large-scale construction of plastics and gasoline. Exploring the commonest form of catalysis utilized in undefined, Electron Microscopy in Heterogeneous Catalysis offers a coherent account of heterogeneous catalytic tactics and catalyst floor constitution on the atomic scale as elucidated via electron microscopy ideas.

Femtosecond optical frequency comb : principle, operation, and applications

Over the past few years, there was a convergence among the fields of ultrafast technology, nonlinear optics, optical frequency metrology, and precision laser spectroscopy. those fields were constructing principally independently because the delivery of the laser, attaining outstanding degrees of functionality.

Al. (1998); Chang-Hasnain (2000)]. 1 DBR-type lasers It is possible to achieve an extended tuning range by use of a structure with multiple cavities and of a short grating as reflector for each cavity. Sampled grating and super-structure grating DBR lasers turn this possibility into reality. 1 41 Sampled grating DBR (SGDBR) lasers Jayaraman et al. [Jayaraman et. al. (1993)] gave the first detailed description of widely tunable DBR lasers using sampled-grating theoretically and experimentally, they achieved the tuning range of 57 nm limited by the beat period.

As shown in Fig. 10, the wide tuning range in this case is due to the enhanced tuning of the filter peak in a GACC, which is placed in the center of the VCF laser [Kim et. al. (1994)]. This enhanced tuning derives from the fact that the center frequency tunes as the index change in one guide relative to the difference in modal indexes between the two guides, rather than relative to the starting index, as in grating mirror or other phase shifting elements [Chuang and Coldren (1993)]. Thus, the tuning enhancement factor is given by F = n1g /(n1g − n2g ), the index of the tunable guide divided by the difference in modal group indexes.

R is usually of the order of 20 ∼ 80 µm. 29) that for gain-guided lasers, D≈R, whereas for index-guided lasers, D R. The question of which value of D are tolerable depends strongly on the numerical aperture used, and hence on the type of applications. 4 Spectral contents The basic spectral characteristics of semiconductor diode laser with free running (solitary laser) have been studied in the last sections. As a last section in this chapter, we are going to examine the spectral contents of diode laser.
