Distributed sensing using all-fiber laser-based acoustic sensors has been demonstrated recently for large area sensing. However, the sensitivity of this type of sensor has so far been much lower by comparison with currently available optical microphones. This paper studies the use of controlled interaction between the modes of oscillation in a fiber laser to enhance the sensitivity of acoustic wav... View full abstract»

We demonstrate a sinusoidal-gated InGaAs/InP single photon avalanche diode (SPAD) pair with high photon detection efficiency (PDE) and low dark count rate (DCR). The photodiode pair is biased in a balanced configuration with only one of the SPADs illuminated. The advantage of balanced detectors is cancellation of the common component of the output signal, which in this case arises from sinusoidal ... View full abstract»

• ### Experimental Investigations of Characteristic Temperatures of Hybrid Silicon Lasers

Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):1512 - 1518
| | PDF (628 KB) | HTML

This paper investigates the characteristic temperatures of hybrid silicon lasers by decomposing them into the temperature dependency of modal gain, transparent current density, internal loss, and injection efficiency under pulsed operation, and comparing them to III–V broad area lasers fabricated using the same InP epitaxial structure. This paper reveals that the limiting factors of the cha... View full abstract»

| | PDF (919 KB) | HTML

The impact of the wavelength-dependent properties of quantum-well (QW) saturable-absorbers (SAs) on the mode-locked operation of monolithic two-section QW lasers is examined with a travelling-wave description that includes a model for the optical response of the active material at finite temperatures. Good-quality mode-locking regimes occur only in small regions of parameter space due to the wavel... View full abstract»

| | PDF (450 KB) | HTML

This paper is the first of a two-part manuscript whose overall objective is to present a unified mathematical kinetics model of four-level laser systems solidly anchored to known physics, optics, and materials considerations, but ultimately viewed from an engineering systems perspective, and with power conservation obeyed throughout. This paper provides the basis for Part II, which couples this ki... View full abstract»

• ### Flat Broadband Chaos in Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers Subject to Chaotic Optical Injection

Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):1536 - 1541

| | PDF (807 KB) | HTML

Four schemes for the generation of chaos in vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) by optical feedback and/or optical injection have been evaluated experimentally. The experimental results show that the preferred scheme is to effect chaotic optical injection into a stable operating VCSEL. This is an effective method to generate a flat broad-bandwidth chaotic signal with the bandwidth of ... View full abstract»

| | PDF (618 KB) | HTML

Numerical simulations are used to solve the coupled partial differential equations describing stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) built up from random thermal phonons as a function of time and the longitudinal spatial coordinate in an optical fiber. In the case of a passive fiber, a laser beam is incident with constant power, but its frequency is linearly ramped at 1.55 μm at a rate of up... View full abstract»

We investigate dispersion properties of n-layers unit cell metallic-dielectric stratified structures (MDSSs) for the first time to our knowledge. An efficient and flexible numerical method is applied to study optical characteristics of the MDSSs. As an example, we systematically investigate the influences of geometric parameters, operating frequency, and gain material on the dispersion prop... View full abstract»

We investigate the temporal and energy characteristics of gain-switched diode-pumped Er-Yb codoped fiber lasers by establishing and solving an experimentally verified numerical model. With a pulsed laser diode pumping at 975 nm and in a proper repetition rate range, the laser exhibits the potential of lasing pulses of several hundred nanoseconds with excellent synchronism at around 1 and 1.5 ...

There is an inherent link between the coherence properties in the first and second order, depending on the quantum optical characteristics of the light emitting source. Whereas the coherence in the first order reflects the spectral distribution of radiation, the coherence in the second order describes the intensity fluctuations of photonic beams quantified by the relative intensity noise. In this ... View full abstract»
