Laser Focus World;Oct2009, Vol. 45 Issue 10, p7
The article discusses various reports published within the issue, including one on the development of green-emitting laser diodes from Sumitomo and Osram Opto Semiconductors, another one on the development of the optically pumped semiconductor laser (OPSL) which is another green laser technology, and one on the reinvention of an avalanche photodetectors producing a monolithic grown complementary metal-oxide-semiconductors (CMOS) compatible devices from Engineers at Intel.
