Laser sources

Although we are well into the fourth decade since the advent of the laser, the number and type of lasers and their wavelength coverage continue to expand. One seeking a photon source is now confronted with an enormous number of possible lasers and laser wavelengths. In addition, various techniques of frequency conversion—harmonic generation, optical parametric oscillation, sum and differencefrequency mixing, and Raman shifting—can be used to enlarge the spectral coverage.

The ﬂexibility of the transfer matrix method allows one to evaluate the spectral behaviour of a corrugated optical ﬁlter/ampliﬁer and the threshold characteristic of a laser source. To extend the analysis into the abovethreshold biasing regime, the transfer matrix has to be modiﬁed so as to include the dominant stimulated emission. Based on a novel numerical technique, the abovethreshold DFB laser model will be presented in this chapter. Using a modiﬁed transfer matrix, the lasing mode characteristics of DFB LDs will be determined....

In this book, the performance characteristics of distributed feedback semiconductor laser diodes and optical tunable ﬁlters based on DFB laser structures have been investigated. As discussed in Chapter 1, these lasers can be used as optical sources and local oscillators in coherent optical communication networks, in which a stable single mode (in both the transverse plane and the longitudinal direction) and narrow spectral linewidth become crucial.

Well known and established techniques, which allow obtaining intense laser pulses, have led to the development of advanced laser system used in science and various industries. Often at times, they combine Qswitching and modelocking techniques in a single device to achieve unprecedented average pulse powers (e.g. HiLASE, HiPER, ELI, NIF, LiFE) for scientific applications, such as secondary sources of EUV, Xray or particles, or as inertial confinement fusion (ICF) drivers.

Communication is a process in which messages, ideas and information can be exchanged between two individuals. From the early days when languages were developed, the methods people use to communicate have experienced a dramatic evolution. Nowadays, rapid transmission of information over long distances and instant access to various information sources have become conspicuous and important features of our society.

Attempts to use lasers in medicine are so numerous and, historically, so diverse, that it proves difficult to describe them all in this chapter. Many laser ideas were introduced experimentally, evaluated clinically and later abandoned, giving way to other concepts in accordance with the availability of laser sources or delivery technologies. This process continues today. The present collection of laser applications thus describes the laser innovations at a given point in time only.

In the latest decade we have witnessed a tremendous advance in telecommunications technology. With the rapid growth and sophistication of digital technology and computers, communication systems have become more versatile and powerful. This has given a modern communication engineer two key problems to solve: (i) how to handle the everincreasing demand for capacity and speed in communication systems, and (ii) how to tackle the need to integrate a wide range of computers and data sources so as to form a highly integrated communication network with a global coverage....
