    A laser-amplifying device is proposed which is based on the stimulated decay of excitons in a pure crystal. An estimate is made of the gain of the device. At a typical frequency the gain is found to be appreciably large, thus suggesting practical application of the laser amplifier. View full abstract»

  • A complete expression for the third-order susceptibility (χ(3)) - Perturbative and diagrammatic approaches

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):37 - 42
    Cited by:  Papers (92)

    The complete expression, including all 48 terms, for the third-order nonlinear susceptibility \chi ^{(3)} is written down explicitly. The diagrammatic and perturbative approaches to its derivation are matched and compared. The use of nontime-ordered (one-sided) diagrams is discussed and shown to give incomplete results.

  • Nonlinear optical interfaces: Switching behavior

    We report the results of a study of the switching behavior of the interface between an ordinary dielectric and a nonlinear dielectric material with an intensity-dependent index of refraction. The non-linear dielectric used for these experiments consisted of a liquid suspension of dielectric particles. Because this medium has a very large effective nonlinearity, it was possible to perform these exp... View full abstract»

  • The nitrogen ion laser pumped by charge transfer

    Charge transfer from He+2to N2has been used in a variety of devices to pump significant levels of inversion of the B^{2}\Sigma _{u} electronic transistion of N+2. Laser output has been achieved at three wavelengths, 391.4, 427.8, and 470.9 nm. Each has corresponded to a transition from the same upper laser level to lower level... View full abstract»

  • Theory and applications of four-wave mixing in photorefractive media

    Cited by:  Papers (483)  |  Patents (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2568 KB)

    The development of a theory of four-wave mixing in photo-refractive crystals is described. This theory is solved in the undepleted pumps approximation with linear absorption and without using the undepleted pumps approximation for negligible absorption. Both the transmission and reflection gratings are treated individually. The results are used to analyze several photorefractive phase conjugate mi... View full abstract»

  • Gamma ray irradiated LED's: Surface emission and significant wavelength tuning via surface states

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):63 - 71
    Cited by:  Papers (6)

    Wavelength tuning via shallow junction GaAs LED's as a result of gamma irradiation is increased significantly when the irradiated LED's are operated in vacuum. Vacuum operation is seen to be essentially equivalent to increased gamma ray dosage for low irradiation levels as a result of desorptive processes common to both phenomena. They give rise to decreased nonradiative and increased radiative co... View full abstract»

    Thirty-four new FIR lasing lines are reported in vinyl chloride optically pumped by a CO2laser. Ten of them are observed when using pump lines belonging to the 10.8 μm hot band. View full abstract»

  • Ultrahigh birefringent optical fibers

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):80 - 85

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (680 KB)

    The modes of weakly guiding fibers, constructed from anisotropic material which exhibits ultrahigh birefringence, are investigated. These modes are plane polarized unless the fiber is virtually uniaxial, with n_{x} = n_{y} \neq n_{z} . The modal intensity patterns are, in general, noncircular, even for fibers of circular cross section. View full abstract»

  • SMMW laser emission and frequency measurements in doubly-deuterated methyl fluoride (CHD2F)

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):5 - 8

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (288 KB)

    Submillimeter wave laser action is reported in CHD2F on 17 "parent" transitions plus three cascade lines. Accurate heterodyne frequency measurements are reported for nine lines. Useful output powers of greater than 1 mW were observed for several lines. The strongest line, which is at 384.3 μm, is particularly significant because of its potential as a local oscillator for the 385 &#... View full abstract»

  • Longitudinal mode spectrum of semiconductor lasers under high-speed modulation

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):71 - 79
    Cited by:  Papers (16)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (976 KB)

    Experimental observations of the lasing spectrum of a single-mode semiconductor laser under continuous microwave modulation reveal that the lasing spectrum is apparently locked to a single-longitudinal mode for optical modulation depths up to ∼ 80 percent, beyond which the lasing spectrum breaks into multimode oscillation. The width of the envelope of the multimode spectrum increases very ra... View full abstract»

    Coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) is a useful tool in combustion diagnostics. In such experiments, the measured spectrum is compared to the predicted one and information is obtained about species temperature and concentration. We examine conditions for the validity of approximate expressions for the nonlinear susceptibility \chi ^{(3)} and indicate... View full abstract»
