    The polarization bistable characteristics of birefringent antiresonant reflection optical waveguide (ARROW) vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) under external optical injection is studied and juxtaposed theoretically with an equivalent index-guided device. The simulation results show that ARROW VCSELs exhibit bistable behaviour and have wider hytheresis loops. The wider hytheresis loo... View full abstract»

    Ytterbium-doped sodium phospho-tellurite glasses are made with different P2O5:TeO2 ratio, and Yb3+ concentrations. Physical properties of the new Yb hosts are favorable for laser applications. The glasses show high absorption and emission cross sections and higher lifetime of Yb3+:2F5/2rarr2F7/2 tra... View full abstract»

  • Linewidth in Widely Tunable Digital Supermode Distributed Bragg Reflector Lasers: Comparison Between Theory and Measurement

    A transfer-matrix-based model is presented for calculating the linewidth of a widely tunable distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) laser as a function of its tuning currents. This model is used to calculate the linewidth of a digital supermode (DS)-DBR laser across its tuning range and compared to linewidth measurements under the same conditions. Excellent agreement is obtained with all the fine struc... View full abstract»

  • Subnanosecond (Er,Yb) Glass Q -Switched Microlasers: 3-D Transient Modeling and Experiments

    We present a new 3-D transient model and new experimental data for Q-switched eyesafe microlasers based on (Er,Yb) glass with a Co2+ :spinel saturable absorber. Subnanosecond pulses have been achieved for the first time using shorter, more highly doped laser glass. The model gives reasonable agreement with data for different Er 3+ concentrations and cavity lengths, using only... View full abstract»

  • Polarization Insensitive Asymmetric Ridge Waveguide Design for Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers and Super Luminescent Light-Emitting Diodes

    Publication Year: 2006 , Page(s): 1137 - 1143

    A polarization-insensitive waveguide design featuring a novel asymmetric ridge structure is proposed. This design relaxes former stringent constraints imposed on material compositions (i.e., refractive indices) and geometrical dimensions in an attempt to reach low polarization sensitivity over a broad wavelength operating range. In conjunction with a bulk active region with an isotropic gain, such... View full abstract»

  • Stokes-Anti-Stokes Iterative Resonator Method for Modeling Raman Lasers

    We present a novel modeling method to describe the steady-state and transient regimes of a continuous-wave pumped Raman laser emitting both Stokes and anti-Stokes photons. Our so-called "Stokes-anti-Stokes iterative resonator method" evaluates for every half round-trip time the longitudinal distribution of the intracavity pump, Stokes and anti-Stokes fields propagating in forward and backward dire...

  • Terahertz Emission in Asymmetric Quantum Wells by Frequency Mixing of Midinfrared Waves

    Generation of terahertz (THz), and sub-THz, coherent waves has been demonstrated at room temperature in GaAs-AlGaAs asymmetric quantum wells by mixing two CO2 laser beams. Two overlapping regimes were studied: the double resonance regime where three states are involved and the optical rectification which relies on two states only. The measured conversion efficiency of ~10-7 W... View full abstract»

    A rate-equation model, in which three discrete quantum-dot (QD) energy levels are assumed and all possible relaxation paths and carrier transport in the GaAs barrier are considered, is presented to analyze the steady-state performance of 1.3 mum undoped and doped dots-under-a-well (DUW) and dots-in-a-well (DWELL) InAs-GaAs QD lasers. DWELL QD lasers have higher saturation value of QD level occupat... View full abstract»
