Provides comprehensive coverage of the advancement of vertical-external-cavity surface-emitting lasers
Vertical-external-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VECSELs) emit coherent light from the infrared to the visible spectral range with high power output. Recent years have seen new device developments - such as the mode-locked integrated (MIXSEL) and the micro external-cavity surface emitting laser (MECSEL) - expand the application of VECSELs to include laser cooling, spectroscopy, telecommunications, biophotonics, and laser-based displays and projectors.
In Vertical External Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers: VECSEL Technology and Applications, leading international research groups provide a comprehensive, fully up-to-date account of all fundamental and technological aspects of vertical external cavity surface emitting lasers. This unique book reviews the physics and technology of optically- and electrically- pumped disk lasers and discusses the latest developments of VECSEL devices in different wavelength ranges. Topics include optically pumped VECSEL physics, continuous wave (CW) lasers, frequency doubling, carrier dynamics in SESAMs, and characterisation of nonlinear lensing in VECSEL gain samples. This authoritative volume:
* Summarises new concepts of DBR-free VECSEL and MECSEL lasers for the first time
* Covers the mode-locking concept and its application
* Provides an overview of the emerging concept of self-mode locking
* Describes the development of next-generation OPS laser products
Vertical External Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers: VECSEL Technology and Applications is an invaluable resource for laser specialists, semiconductor physicists, optical industry professionals, spectroscopists, telecommunications engineers and industrial physicists.
