    Abstract. We apply the technique of nonlinear mirror (NLM) mode-locking to a pulsed diode-pumped, actively mode-locked Nd:YAG laser. Either effective pulse compression or pulse amplitude control regimes are achieved, depending on the NLM configuration. Operating the NLM as a fast saturable...

    The article presents information on the working of a laser diode. A laser diode is made from two pieces of semiconducting materials sandwiched together between electrodes. Electrons, which are repeatedly excited by a current applied across the device, give up their extra energy in the form of...

    A new approach to investigating the leakage of nonequilibrium holes and electrons from the active region of a semiconductor laser diode is proposed. According to this, the scanning Kelvin probe force microscopy is used to measure averaged local changes in the contact potential difference on the...
