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.

    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...

    Two types of coaxial phase shifters (PSs) are considered. They are designed for spectral ellipsometry, where achromatism is improved using a pair of parallel Al mirrors oriented at small angle θ with respect to the incident laser beam. In a phase device based on a fused silica Fresnel rhomb,...

    The growth rate of Bragg gratings written using 193-nm light from an ArF excimer laser is shown to be non-linear with the pulse energy density for Er3+ co-doped Al silica. This yields a refractive-index increase up to a few 10−3. We then use phase-shift interferometry to measure the sample...
