  • Passive mode-locking of two-section quantum-dot mode-locked lasers grown by metalorganic vapor phase epitaxy on InP is reported. 1250-μm long lasers exhibit a wide tuning range of 300 MHz around the fundamental mode-locking frequency of 33.48 GHz. The frequency tuning is achieved by varying the reverse bias of the saturable absorber from 0 to −2.2 V and the gain section current from 90 to 280 mA. 3 dB optical spectra width of 6–7 nm leads to ex-facet optical pulses with full-width half-maximum down to 3.7 ps. Single-section quantum-dot mode-locked lasers show 0.8 ps broad optical pulses after external fiber-based compression. Injection current tuning from 70 tomore » 300 mA leads to 30 MHz frequency tuning.« less
  • We report a new Nd:YAG-pumped picosecond optical parametric oscillator that generates bandwidth-limited pulses. Using two LiNbO/sub 3/ crystals, it produces tunable, near-1.4-..mu..m (signal-wave) pulses of 18-psec duration and ..delta nu.. = 1.2 cm/sup -1/ FWHM (..delta nu..tau = 0.7). The output energy of the optical parametric oscillators in a signal wave is no less than 2 mJ with 10% energy stability. The key to this device is the injection of cw single-frequency GaAs diode-laser radiation. Using the injection of diode-laser radiation, we have measured the spectral intensity of a quantun noise at lambda = 0.85 ..mu..m. The intensity was foundmore » to be 6 +- 2 W/cm/sup 2/ cm/sup -1/ sr (theoretical value, 4.7 W/cm/sup 2/ cm/sup -1/ sr).« less
  • The frequency response of a 1.3-..mu..m InGaAsP vapor phase regrown buried heterostructure laser with an 18-GHz cw bandwidth is analyzed in detail. The intrinsic bandwidth of the device is shown to be 22 GHz and the 3-dB R-italicC-italic roll-off frequency due to electrical parasitics is found to be 10 GHz.
  • Radiation from an ultrastable 240 GHz solid state source has been injected, through an isolator, into the cavity of the University of California, Santa Barbara millimeter-wave free-electron laser (FEL). High-power FEL emission, normally distributed among many of the cavity's longitudinal modes, is concentrated into the single mode to which the solid state source has been tuned. The linewidth of the FEL emission is 0.5 MHz, consistent with the Fourier transform limit for the 2 {mu}s pulses. This demonstration of frequency-stable, ultranarrow-band FEL emission is a critical milestone on the road to FEL-based pulsed electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy.
  • A theoretical and experimental investigation of frequency chirping in injection-locked semiconductor lasers under a condition of small signal modulation is presented. It shows that a substantial reduction of frequency chirping can be obtained which, however, is effective only up to modulation frequencies of the order of the locking bandwidth and is strongly dependent on the frequency detuning between master and slave.
