Physics of Solid-State Lasers

The authors study the tactics of interplay of coherent radiation with solids, actual relationships governing lasing in dielectric crystals and glasses, activated through luminescent impurities. Solid-state lasers on crystals and glass are used so much generally in technology and expertise, due to their compact shape, toughness and a couple of specific radiation parameters.

Quantum size effect can provide an energy structure that encourages stimulated emission. This effect will be used in quantum-well (QW) lasers. Optical Power Output When the laser is biased to a current I, larger than the threshold current I th , optical power begins to appear at the output. 3) where 1")d is the external quantum efficiency, v the optical frequency, h Planck's constant, and P sp the power contributed by spontaneous recombination of the carriers. In a well-designed laser, Psp is kept very low and is usually neglegible.

More and more optical power is now concentrated to the zeroth-order mode. Thus this system works in favor of higher injection currents. In a system employing heterodyne detection, or in high-speed signal transmission, where only a single mode is desired, it becomes important to operate a laser at a high current; however, a higher operating current will produce more heat. If it is not properly dissipated, the extra heat increases the device temperature, which decreases its external quantum efficiency and thus the power output.

The distribution of power between the different modes is not uniform. It decreases as the mode order increases, as shown in Fig. 4, where optical power is plotted against current for various mode numbers in a typical laser operation. Note also that the optical power of the higher-order modes saturates more readily than the zeroth-order mode, indicated by lower amplitudes, a condition that favors higher current operation. This trend is also clearly shown in Fig. 5, where the total optical power is plotted against the injection current.
