    An architectural approach that decreases the pair on-off time to much less than the individual device recovery time is presented. Two GaAs Fabry–Perot étalons, each having a 30 ns recovery time, were connected in series, defining a logic function with a fast turn-on time and a fast...

    High-quality deeply-etched GaN-based semiconductor/air distributed Bragg reflectors (DBRs) have been fabricated. A 50% reduction relative to the value for reflectors of Fabry-Perot type in the threshold pump intensity was realized by the introduction of such DBRs at the ends of the laser cavity....

    We report an external cavity diode laser (ECDL), using a diode whose front facet is not anti-reflection (AR) coated that has a mode-hop-free (MHF) tuning range greater than 135 GHz. We achieved this using a short external cavity and by simultaneously tuning the internal and external modes of the...
