• ### Lateral Oxidation of AlAs for Circular and Inverted Mesa Saturable Bragg Reflectors

Publication Year: 2013, Page(s):731 - 738
Cited by:  Papers (2)
| |PDF (1930 KB) | HTML

A model of the thermal oxidation kinetics that is based on the continuity equation is adapted to the fabrication of circular saturable Bragg reflector (SBR) mesa structures, as well as inverted mesa array structures. A comparison between theoretical calculations and experimental measurements shows good agreement, making the model a useful tool for the controllability of the structure-dependent oxi...

• ### Analysis of CW Oxygen-Iodine Laser Performance Using Similarity Criteria

Publication Year: 2013, Page(s):739 - 746
Cited by:  Papers (1)
| |PDF (864 KB) | HTML

A simplified single-frequency two-level model for predicting power extraction from a CW oxygen-iodine laser (OIL) considering relaxation losses has been developed. The model predicts that the energy efficiency of CW OILs with stable resonators depends on three similarity criteria. Criterion γd is the ratio of the residence time of active medium in the resonator to the singlet oxy... View full abstract»

• ### Photocurrent Calculation of Intersubband Transitions to Continuum-Localized States in GaAs/AlGaAs Multiquantum Wells for Mid-Infrared Photodetector

Publication Year: 2013, Page(s):747 - 752

| |PDF (866 KB) | HTML

In this paper, we propose a system based on GaAs heterostructure where it is possible to generate photocurrent with mid-infrared radiation. This system is based on a central quantum well (CQW) embedded in a superlattice. Because of the CQW, which acts as a defect, there are localized states between the mini-bands in the continuum of the conduction band. Unlike the usual systems where the final sta...

| |PDF (3544 KB) | HTML

Single element 33×33 μm2 InAs/GaSb superlattice light-emitting diodes (SLEDs) operating at 77 K with peak emission at approximately 4.6 μm are demonstrated. A peak radiance of 2.2 W/cm2/sr was measured corresponding to an apparent temperature greater than 1350 K within the 3-5 μm band. A 48 μm pitch, 512 × 512 individually addressable...

| |PDF (2581 KB) | HTML

We investigated the third-order optical nonlinearity of a new nonlinear optical crystal BaAlBO3F2 (BABF) using Z-scan technique with a picosecond 532-nm laser. Polarization-dependent nonlinear refractive index γ of the BABF crystal was measured with an a-cut sample and a sample cut along the type I phase-matching angle for third-harmonic-generation of lasers at 1064 nm...

• ### Spectral Analysis for Velocity Measurement Through Self-Mixing Interferometry

Publication Year: 2013, Page(s):765 - 769

| |PDF (901 KB) | HTML

A novel elaboration technique for a self-mixing interferometer is presented. It enables the measurement of speed and direction for a remote target, without using heterodyne detection. The elaboration employs the signal non-linearity for recovering the speed sign directly in the frequency domain. The target speed is measured by the signal frequency, whereas the speed sign is evaluated by the phases... View full abstract»

| |PDF (802 KB) | HTML

The 120 MeV Au9+ ion induced modifications in a ZnS:TiO2/p-Si quantum dot (QD) heterojunction has been studied by In-Situ current-voltage (I-V) measurements. This paper shows that the process of ion irradiation is a novel technique in modifying the electronic properties of QDs based semiconductor heterojunctions. After Au9+ ion irradiation, there is an increase in ... View full abstract»

| |PDF (2464 KB) | HTML

A coupled transmission line model whose parameters are analytically given is provided for fast and accurate analysis of miscellaneous plasmonic structures with metal-dielectric-metal (MDM) arrangement. The coupling of surface plasmons supported by the planar metal-dielectric interfaces is included in the proposed model and thereby the effects of the first non-principal mode of the MDM waveguide ar...

To theoretically analyze the spectral characteristics of terahertz (THz) electromagnetic radiation generated by photoconductive antennas, the paper proposed a model by considering laser induced plasma in photoconductive antenna. At a bias voltage, plasma oscillation generates Langmuir wave that propagates in the inhomogeneous plasma in the direction of density gradient, and is converted to THz rad... View full abstract»

| |PDF (2461 KB) | HTML

In this paper, we experimentally and numerically study the dynamics of semiconductor ring lasers that are subjected to long delay and moderate self-feedback. Through varying the pump current or the feedback strength or both, we study the appearance and parameter dependence of low frequency fluctuations in these systems. In particular, we observe different routes to the building up of the initial p... View full abstract»

We analyze the random errors occurring in interferometric measurements because of the speckle pattern regime, when the remote target is a diffusing surface. First, we review the statistical properties of speckle and discuss amplitude fading that is affecting the self-mixing interferometer (SMI) signal and methods to alleviate it. Second, we derive intra-speckle phase errors using the bivariate con... View full abstract»
