9780123976314: Semiconductor Lasers II: Materials and Structures (Optics and Photonics)

This volume presents state-of-the-art information on several important material systems and device structures employed in modern semiconductor lasers. The first two chapters discuss several III-V, II-VI, and VI-VI compound semiconductor material systems employed in diode lasers whose emission spectra cover the range from the blue to the mid-infrared. Subsequent chapters describe the elaboration of special laser structures designed for achieving narrow spectral linewidths and wavelength tunability, as well as high power emission devices. The last chapter covers the development of surface emitting diode lasers, particularly vertical cavity structures.
In all five chapters, the underlying device physics as well as the state-of-the-art and future trends are discussed. This book introduces the non-expert to the design and fabrication issues involved in the development of these important laser devices. In addition, it reviews the current status of the different material systems and cavity configurations for the benefit of readers engaged in research in this field. Useful background material related to the fundamentals of lasing in semiconductors can be found in the companion volume, Semiconductor Lasers I: Fundamentals.

Key Features
* Covers important recent advances in materials, design, fabrication, and device structure of semiconductor lasers--aspects not covered in previously existing literature
* Introduces the non-expert to the subject
* Useful for professionals engaged in research and development
* Numerous schematic and data-containing illustrations
* Written by leading experts in the field

From the Back Cover:

Seminconductor lasers are now manufactured in vast quantities for use in CD players, laser printers, and optical communication systems. They represent the most efficient way known of turning electricity into light and, no doubt, have immense potential for future applications. This book covers the latest research on the various types of semi-conductor lasers and serves as an overview for new entrants into the field.

This book covers the device physics of semiconductor lasers in chapters written by recognized experts in this field. The volume begins by introducing the basic mechanisms of optical gain in semiconductors and the role of quantum confinement in modern quantum well diode lasers. Subsequent chapters treat the effects of built-in strain, one of the important recent advances in the technology of these laser, and the physical mechanisms underlying the dynamics and high speed modulation of these devices. 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 state-of-the-art discussion of some of the most advanced semiconductor laser structures, intended for readers engaged in research in this field. This book may also serve as an introduction for the companion volume, Semiconductor LasersII: Materials and Structures, which presents further details on the different material systems and laser structures used for achieving specific diode laser performance features.

About the Author:

Eli Kapon received his Ph.D. in Physics from Tel Aviv University, Israel, in 1982. He was a Research Fellow at the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA and Member of Technical Staff and District Manager at Bellcore, Red Bank, New Jersey, before assuming his current position of Professor of Physics of Nanostructures at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne. His research interests have ranged from semiconductor lasers to integrated optoelectronics and, more recently, low-dimensional quantum nanostructures.
