    By means of an external grating cavity, the dispersion relation of the transverse modes of gain-guided coupled-stripe laser diodes is determined. The parabolic relation obtained indicates (despite the stripes) a relatively flat gain profile similar to a broad area laser. Accordingly, higher...

    We report selected area growth of GaAs by XeF excimer laser induced pyrolysis of triethylgallium (TEGa) adsorbed on GaAs(100). TEGa dissociatively chemisorbs at 400 °C to form a stable layer which decomposes further under laser irradiation to liberate hydrocarbon products. The Ga left behind...

    Monoclinic potassium rare-earth double tungstates [KRE(WO4)2, RE = Y, Lu, Yb; KREW] are well suited as hosts for active lanthanide ion (Ln3+) dopants for diode-pumped solid-state lasers, with particular interest in thin-disk laser configurations when they are grown as thin films. Using...
