This book describes the fascinating recent advances made concerning the chaos, stability and instability of semiconductor lasers, and discusses their applications and future prospects in by: The book concludes with chapters addressing the control of photon states in squeezed-light and microcavity structures, and electron states in low dimensional quantum wire and quantum dot lasers. The book offers useful information for both readers unfamiliar with semiconductor lasers, through the introductory parts of each chapter, as well as a. The beam divergence of semiconductor lasers is much greater than most of the lasers, depending on temperature, therefore ranging from to milli radians. In spite of the fact that semiconductor lasers do not produce a beam with characteristics as desired in other types of lasers, their small size, low power consumption and relatively high. Part one introduces the fundamentals of semiconductor lasers, beginning with key principles before going on to discuss photonic crystal lasers, high power semiconductor lasers and laser beams, and the use of semiconductor lasers in ultrafast pulse generation. Part two then reviews applications of visible and near-infrared emitting lasers.

This book is intended to provide a comprehensive account of long-wave­ length semiconductor lasers. Particular attention is paid to InGaAsP lasers, although we also consider semiconductor lasers operating at longer wave­ : Springer US. This book describes the fascinating recent advances made concerning the chaos, stability and instability of semiconductor lasers, and discusses their applications and future prospects in detail. It emphasizes the dynamics in semiconductor lasers by optical and electronic feedback, opticalBrand: Springer International Publishing. Semiconductor lasers have important applications in numerous fields, including engineering, biology, chemistry and medicine. They form the backbone of the optical telecommunications infrastructure supporting the internet, and are used in information storage devices, bar-code scanners, laser printers and many other everyday products. How diode lasers make light. In a laser diode, we take things a stage further to make the emerging light more pure and powerful. Instead of using silicon as the semiconductor, we use a different material, notably an alloy of aluminum and gallium arsenide (indium gallium arsenide phosphide is another popular choice). Electrons are injected into the diode, they combine with .

New scientific tasks require better performance and novel functionalities of light sources, while new achievements in semiconductor lasers expand the area of their possible applications. For these reasons, an up-to-date summary of their science and technology is highly desirable, which is the purpose of this book. Applications of semiconductor lasers in optical communications and other lightwave technologies have expanded considerably in recent years. This updated edition of the leading guide in the fields responds to these developments. It incorporates the latest advances in the design and performance of /5(3).   The book concludes with chapters addressing the control of photon states in squeezed-light and microcavity structures, and electron states in low dimensional quantum wire and quantum dot lasers. The book offers useful information for both readers unfamiliar with semiconductor lasers, through the introductory parts of each chapter, as well as a. This work contains tutorial-style reviews on important topics in the field of semiconductor lasers. A feature of the book is its discussion of expected future developments in the field. Research material is included that has previously been available in the 1/5(1).
