ABSTRACT
The phase shift of the 180° out of phase mode to the 0° phase mode is an efficient means for producing a stable high power laser output in a coherent single beam. We fabricated laser array diodes which are operated in a very stable 180° out of phase mode, and a phase shifter in which accurate optical phase shift control is possible. These two devices are nearly aligned and a stable quasi 0° phase mode operation is achieved up to 200 mW without any other optical equipment. This fact indicates that it would be possible for these two devices to be integrated.

    A millimetre-wave coplanar strip (CPS) analogue distributed MMIC phase shifter is reported for the first time. Since this phase shifter is based on a balanced CPS line, no extra mode transition structure is required for integration with the balanced circuits using CPS or slot lines as well as...

    We report on a preferred phase shift Δ[lowercase_phi_synonym]0 between a spin torque oscillator (STO) and an alternating current (Iac) injected at the intrinsic frequency (fSTO) of the STO. In the in-plane (IP) precession mode the STO adjusts to a state where its resistance (or voltage) lags...

    Some improvements for distributed Schottky diode tunable phase shifters are carried out. First, near- and far-end sections are tapered to improve return loss. Then, to reduce device length, and the number of varactors, inductances are added in series with the varactors, leading to an improved...
