The simultaneous energy delivery of neodymium:yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) and CO laser beams by a single As-S glass fiber is described. The transmission loss in the fiber of a Nd:YAG laser beam was 2.6 dB/m under the energy delivery. A fiber output of 14 W was obtained at an approximately 1:1 power ratio from these lasers with a 400-μm core diameter fiber.

    We report a new electro-optic sampling configuration which allows planar digital GaAs circuits to be probed noninvasively. Our technique employs a novel backside reflecting geometry, in which a laser beam enters the GaAs substrate from the back and reflects from the circuit metallization. By...

    Direct writing of GaAs epitaxial monolayers has been achieved by laser-assisted atomic layer epitaxy (LALE) technique on GaAs substrates. Sequential exposures of the substrate to trimethylgallium (TMG) and arsine (AsH3) were separated by periods of hydrogen purging to prevent mixing. Laser beam...
