    A high-voltage measuring system, employing a quartz Pockels cell, is described. The system is capable of a large voltage range, a fast response time (ns), a high SNR, an excellent accuracy, a good linearity, and high reliability. Furthermore, the Pockels cell can be isolated from ground potential. Equally important, the detection system can be isolated from sources of electrical noise present in, ... View full abstract»

    A multistable operation in semiconductor laser amplifiers, based upon the carrier density dependence of the active region refractive index, is proposed. Simple analytical expressions describing the optical multistability are given, using the so-called antiguidance factor, which is the ratio of the decrease in the real refractive index to the increase in the imaginary refractive index.

  • Photoacoustic observation of third-order absorption in thallium halides at 1.06 µm

    Publication Year: 1983, Page(s):1169 - 1172

    1.06 μm laser photoacoustic spectroscopy has been applied to studies of third-order multiphoton absorption in selected thallium halides. This readily detected bandgap crossing absorption is observed at laser fluences significantly below the n -on-one damage threshold. Its importance for modeling of high intensity effects in wide bandgap ionic crystals is d... View full abstract»

  • Circuit modeling of the effect of diffusion on damping in a narrow-stripe semiconductor laser

    This paper describes a circuit modeling technique for directly modulated narrow-stripe semiconductor lasers with strong carrier confinement and index guiding. It is shown that diffusion damping of the modulation response, due to a nonuniform electron density distribution in the active layer, can be accounted for in terms of an equivalent optical gain saturation. Based on this equivalence, a small-... View full abstract»

  • Optical waveguiding in (In, Ga)(As, P) inverted rib waveguide lasers at 1.3 µm wavelength

    A theory is presented for waveguiding in inverted rib waveguide (IRW) lasers. For the first time, theory has been compared with experiment for these structures in (In, Ga)(As, P). Consideration is given to dielectric constant models in the quaternary system. After including the large negative effect of carriers on the dielectric constant, the modified single effective oscillator model is found to ... View full abstract»

    Large photodissociation atomic iodine laser oscillators have been observed to develop gas dynamic instabilities during pumping and lasing. In the present work the growth rate of fluctuations is analyzed in a linearized description of the total coupled gas dynamics, chemistry, and lasing. The total growth factor of the gas dynamic instabilities is found to be several orders of magnitude for typical... View full abstract»

    We describe a flashlamp pumped dye laser, incorporating both prepulse and simmer enhancement, which is capable of kW outputs for the 0.1 ms duration of the flashlamp pulse. The laser has been operated with the new dye DCM; we find that using oxygen or nitrogen gas in the dye solution greatly increases both laser amplitude and pulse duration. View full abstract»

    Noise phenomena in semiconductor lasers have been extensively studied from an experimental point of view because of their importance in designing optical communication systems. Recently, a semiclassical theory of laser noise has been presented [1]. In this paper, following a different and simpler approach, we obtain analytical expressions for the intensity and phase noise power spectra which agree... View full abstract»

  • Influence of self-sustained pulsation in semiconductor lasers on optical transmission system

    Degradations in semiconductor lasers caused by defects, such as dark lines or dark spots in an active region, sometimes introduce self-sustained pulsations. In this paper, dynamic properties of a modulated self-sustained pulsation InGaAsP/InP semiconductor laser are presented and the influence on the optical transmission system is described. In high-speed pulse modulation above the pulsation frequ... View full abstract»

  • Low temperature operation of an S2laser using radio frequency simmer discharges

    Technological problems stemming from high temperature operation of the sulfur resonator have hindered its development as a tunable, efficient, discharge pumped laser. The use of RF simmer discharges is shown to reduce previous temperature constraints by dissociating polyatomic sulfur molecules into the dimer, such that lasing is achieved when pumped by an XeCl excimer laser. The peak power output ... View full abstract»
