    Stimulated electronic hyper-Raman scattering has been obtained in lithium vapor via excitation of several two-photon resonances ( 2s-3d, 2s-4s, 2s-4d ) with a pulsed dye laser. The wavelength of the generated radiation was shorter than the pump wavelength and tunable over a few nanometers. The tuning behavior of the hyper-Raman laser was influenced by two-pho...

    High power (6.6 W at 43 pps) stimulated Raman scattering at 459 nm was obtained by down shifting the radiation of a XeCl excimer laser in a lead vapor heat-pipe. Experiments were conducted with different buffer gas species. Photon conversion efficiency as high as 66 percent and energy slope efficiency of 53 percent obtained with Xe as the buffer gas at 1300°C. The apparatus was in daily use f... View full abstract»

    An InP/GaInAsP/GaInAs avalanche photodiode (APD) with separate absorption and multiplication (SAM) regions has been designed taking into account the excess noise generated in GaInAsP and GaInAs. The multiplication factor dependence of the excess noise factor F has been calculated using realistic electron and hole ionization rates in InP, GaInAsP, and GaInAs, as... View full abstract»

    Feasibilities of InGaAsP/InP distributed feedback buried heterostructure lasers in the 1.3 and 1.5 μm wavelength regions with two cleaved facets are shown. Theoretical and experimental examinations show that the kL values ranging between 1 and 2 are sufficient for high-performance operation with the stable single longitudinal mode in a temperature range wider than 100 degrees. Distribution of... View full abstract»

    We present a formalism for analyzing laser resonators which possess nonplanar mirrors and lateral waveguiding [e.g., an unstable resonator semiconductor laser (URSL)]. The electric field is expanded in lateral modes of the complex-index waveguide and is required to reproduce itself after, one roundtrip of the cavity. We show how the waveguide modes, their gain and loss, and hence the criterion for... View full abstract»

    A fully two-dimensional analysis of a steady-state RF excited rectangular bore waveguide laser, without adjustable parameters, is presented. The effects of the gas temperature, diffusion, and electron density on the laser gain are accounted for. Comparisons of predicted small-signal gain and output laser power with experimental results are given. The agreement is quite satisfactory. View full abstract»

    Coupled wave theory is used to examine the performance of lasers formed from an array of coupled stripe waveguides with a grating overlay. It is found that such lasers exhibit inherent longitudinal mode discrimination, and, if the number of coupled guides is small, inherent transverse mode discrimination as well. The conditions for such selectivity are examined in detail, and it is shown that the ... View full abstract»

  • Spectral linewidth estimation of a 1.5 µm range InGaAsP/InP distributed feedback laser

    Spectral linewidth of a 1.5 μm range distributed feedback buried heterostructure (DFB-BH) laser in CW operation is estimated theoretically and experimentally. Considering the equivalent mirror facet loss coefficient and the confinement factor in the active layer, etc., we modified the conventional formula for the spectral linewidth of single-mode semiconductor lasers and presented a formula f...

    The scaling and design principles for a MJ-scale krypton fluoride laser are derived and applied. First, the scaling limits of size and operation of a single large-aperture module (oscillator or amplifier) are explained, and its performance evaluated. A new scheme for combining amplifier modules into high output power chains is then presented. The performance of this architecture is investigated, s... View full abstract»

    We present a theoretical analysis of the forward and reflected amplitudes in a diode laser oscillator cavity for both a single resonant mode and an injected signal. The analysis includes gain saturation and allows the gain coefficient at the injected frequency to be different from that at the resonant frequency. Analytic solutions for the axially dependent amplitudes are presented for the case of ... View full abstract»

    Analytical expressions for the power spectral densities of intensity and frequency noise of single-mode semiconductor lasers operating in a regime of injection locking are derived by appropriately taking into account the spontaneous emission processes into the lasing modes of both the master and slave lasers. They show how the noise spectra of the slave are influenced by the value of the injected ... View full abstract»

    We present a derivation of the noise spectra of multielement semiconductor lasers. We model the noise by a set of Langevin sources which drive a system of small-signal field equations. The Langevin sources are normalized to transition rates within the laser and general formulas for relative intensity, frequency fluctuation, and field spectra are produced. We evaluate the formulas for several speci... View full abstract»

    Results of a parametric study of the operation of a dual-cavity hybrid CO2laser system consisting of a common TEA section and two low-pressure gain sections are presented. While the laser pulse buildup time for each cavity was insensitive to the discharge current of the CW gain section, it changed by up to 400 ns on changing the gas pressure. This permitted generation of temporally smoo... View full abstract»
