E C E 741: Semiconductor Diode Lasers and other Optoelectronic Devices

  • Catalog Description:
    In the first part of the course this modern photonic technology will be overviewed, and key parameters and concepts will be introduced. In the second part, the basic mechanisms determining the relationship between optical gain and current density, as well as quantum-well laser structures will be treated. The third part will cover the physics of high-power phase-locked laser arrays or other optoelectronics devices.
