  • Optical Injection Effects in Nanolasers

    Publication Year: 2016, Article Sequence Number: 1200108
    Cited by:  Papers (2)

    The response of nanolasers subject to optical injection has been analyzed. Calculations have been performed using rate equations, which include the Purcell cavity-enhanced spontaneous emission factor F and the spontaneous emission coupling factor β. In the analysis, the influence of F and β is evaluated for varying the injection strength and frequency detuning between the master and ... View full abstract»

  • Air-Clad Holmium-Doped Silica Fiber Laser

    Publication Year: 2016, Article Sequence Number: 1600108
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1486 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We report the design, fabrication, and operation of an air-clad holmium-doped fiber laser that was manufactured by directly milling the rare-earth-doped preform. This silica fiber laser operates at 2.1 μm with a slope efficiency of 49.7%, and is in-band pumped with a 1.94-μm thulium fiber laser. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first demonstration of an air-clad holmium-dope... View full abstract»

  • Realization of a Tunable 455.5-nm Laser With Low Intensity Noise by Intracavity Frequency-Doubled Ti:Sapphire Laser

    Publication Year: 2016, Article Sequence Number: 1700106

    A tunable single-frequency 455.5-nm laser with low intensity noise by means of intracavity frequency-doubled Ti:sapphire (Ti:S) laser is presented. By optimizing the curvature radii of the resonator mirrors, the beam waist of the fundamental wave at the Ti:S crystal is focused, and the threshold pump power is decreased, which can overcome the disadvantage of the upper threshold pump power due to t...

  • Unidirectional Emission Cut-Corner Square Microcavity Lasers

    Publication Year: 2016, Article Sequence Number: 2000105
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (870 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Square microcavity lasers with a cut-corner are proposed and demonstrated for realizing unidirectional emission single-mode lasers. The mode characteristics of the square resonator with a cut-corner are investigated by 2-D finite-element method simulation. Far field patterns with single petal and double petals are obtained numerically for symmetric and antisymmetric modes, respectively. Square mic... View full abstract»

  • Investigations on Spectro-Temporally Resolved Stokes Polarization Parameters of Transverse Multi-Mode Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers

    We present comprehensive studies of the temporal polarization behavior of oxide-confined vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) in terms of Stokes polarization parameters (SPPs) on microsecond time scales. The observed complex temporal polarization dynamics of the total emission will be attributed, after its spectrally decomposition, to the polarization contributions of each individual t...

  • Bistable Operation of 1-D Photonic Crystal Laser With Saturable Absorber

    Publication Year: 2016, Article Sequence Number: 6400110
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2181 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Bistable operation of a 1-D photonic crystal (PC) laser with a nonlinear absorber is presented. The model is based on a modified transfer matrix method with a Bloch wave formalism and allows to define, in an easy way, the influence of the real structures parameters, such as a period of the structure, contrast of the refractive indices of crystal layers, the number of the primitive cells creating t...

    A comprehensive and rigorous analysis is presented for the study of terahertz photomixing process in a biased graphene layer, when two obliquely incident waves are used as primary excitation. The second-order nonlinearity tensor of graphene associated with the difference frequency generation (DFG) is calculated to evaluate the amount of induced terahertz current density. In this analysis, we are c... View full abstract»

    The application of the Wigner-Veyl transform for the analysis of quantum transport effects leads to several difficulties and to criticism. One of the difficulties is the numerical discretization of the Wigner transport equations, after the Wigner-Veyl transform is applied onto the statistical density matrix as a part of the quantum Liouville equation. The conventional discretization methods are ba... View full abstract»
