    Irradiation of a thin metal target by 38-fs laser pulses at a wavelength of 800 nm is shown to generate a beam of photoelectrons that contains a component whose duration is shorter than 100 fs. The ensemble of photoelectrons is formed by photoemission of a gold film about 10 nm thick sputtered...

    We report the observation of stimulated emission in ridge quantum wire (QWR) structures at temperatures from 4.7 to 290 K. To examine the origin of the stimulated emission, the spatially and spectrally resolved microscopic images of the emission were measured. It was most likely attributed to...
