    Resonance reflection of light from the interface between a dielectric and an alkali vapor is studied. Two cases are considered in which a laser light beam is polarized either parallel or perpendicular to the plane of incidence. Upon scanning of the frequency of the incident laser radiation, in...

    Polarization-based line spectroscopy is a valuable tool in determining the characteristics of electron distribution functions in anisotropic plasmas. For instance, directional electrons can unevenly populate the magnetic sublevels of atomic energy levels resulting in partial polarization of the...

    Ridge waveguide AlGaAs/GaAs distributed feedback lasers with the cavity length of 820 μm were fabricated. The differential quantum efficiency was as high as 28%, and the power-dependent linewidth was more than an order of magnitude smaller than that of the 290 μm laser, which agrees with...

    The natural birefringence of the Nd:YLF crystal is utilized to achieve a reliable TEM-mode linearly polarized laser at 1053 nm in a compact concave-plano resonator. The efficient selection of the polarization relies on the combined effect of the difference in diffraction angle for σ- and...
