    Group-III nitrides are considered to be a strategic technology for the development of ultraviolet photodetectors due to their remarkable properties in terms of spectral selectivity, radiation hardness, and noise. The potential advantages of these materials were initially obscured by their large...

    A diode-pumped self-Q-switched and mode-locked intracavity frequency doubled Nd:GdVO4/KTP green laser is presented. The self mode-locking is self-starting and stable. About 100% modulation depth for the self-mode-locked green pulses has been achieved. We propose a developed rate equation model...

    We propose a photonic switch employing a liquid-crystalline material. The material exhibits a change in the sign of the dielectric anisotropy switching from a positive to a negative value at a certain crossover frequency. By application of an electric field this phenomenon can be used to alter...
