    The regime of generation of a regular series of relatively short pulses in a cw-pumped semiconductor laser was numerically modeled. This regime is developed as a result of a phase self-modulation of the light field in the presence of a thin active layer on the laser diode edge, provided that the...

    Optical feedback to the laser source in tunable diode laser spectroscopy (TDLS) is known to create intensity modulation noise due to elatoning and optical feedback (i.e. multiplicative technical noise) that usually limits spectral signal-to-noise (S/N). The large technical noise often limits...

    A novel instrument that employs a high-finesse optical cavity as an absorption cell has been developed for sensitive measurements of gas mixing ratios using near-infrared diode lasers and absorption-spectroscopy techniques. The instrument employs an off-axis trajectory of the laser beam through...

    Absorption spectra of GaAs excited by short high-power light pulses are calculated. The appearance of a “protrusion” in the spectra is caused by the deviation of the electron distribution function from the Fermi function. The distortion of the distribution function is related to LO...
