A principle of self-developing microlenses for semiconductor lasers has been demonstrated using a photosensitive glass, As[sub 2]S[sub 3]. The glass film is placed in front of a semiconductor laser, the light from which increases the refractive index and thickness of the film. If its position and thickness are properly selected, the illuminated film operates as an aspherical microlens which can focus an elliptical laser beam to a circular spot. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.

    The measured hyperfine shifts of ten nd10(n+1)s1 impurities in zinc chalcogenide hosts are found to scale with an orbital-moments ratio of both the host anions and the impurity ions. The scaling relation is employed to predict hyperfine shifts of the remaining eight impurity-host systems.

    Double-channel double-heterostructure (DCDH) lead chalcogenide lasers were made using a chemical etchant. The etching rate depends strongly on the europium content of the ternary compound PbxEu1-xSe. This technique allows the development of selective etching processes for advanced laser design....

    A varifocal self-centering microlens using light-induced concentration-capillary convection has been developed for the first time. Measurements were made of the focal length as a function of the control beam power. The rates of self-centering and shape rearrangement of the microlens were estimated.

    The microlensing of distant stars by noncompact objects such as neutralino stars is considered. Recently, Gurevich and Zybin considered the objects as microlenses. Using a nonsingular density distribution, we analyze microlensing by noncompact objects. We obtain analytic solutions to the...
