    The pulse width of an actively mode-locked GaAs/AlGaAs laser diode in an external cavity configuration is continuously decreased from 22 to 7 ps by tuning the laser wavelength from the gain maximum close to the high-energy cutoff of the gain profile. This wavelength-dependent pulse shortening...

    Uniform linear arrays of antiguides have 100% optical transmission between elements when the interelement spacing is an integer number of leaky wave half-wavelengths in the lateral direction.
