Description

In this ready reference leading research groups from Europe and the USA share their inside knowledge on all fundamental and technological aspects of vertical external cavity surface emitting lasers (VECSELs).
Following a brief review of the physics and technology behind optically and electrically pumped disk lasers, the authors go on to discuss new developments of these devices in the different wavelength ranges. In addition, the novel concepts of DBR-free and MECSEL lasers are summarized for the first time in book form. The final part deals with the mode-locking concept and its realization up to the description of frequency-comb generation. The book concludes with an overview of the MIXEL concept and the emerging idea of self-mode locking.
A unique handbook for laser specialists, physicists in industry and semiconductor physicists, those working in the optical industry, spectroscopists, and telecommunications engineers.
