ABSTRACT
Phase-shifted distributed-feedback (PSDFB) lasers with multiple phase-shift regions are proposed to reduce the effect of spatial hole burning in conventional PSDFB lasers where a single phase shift leads to a highly nonuniform axial distribution of the mode intensity. We analyze multiple phase-shift PSDFB lasers by solving numerically the coupled-wave equations. Our results show that the use of even two phase-shift regions can substantially reduce the axial inhomogeneity of the mode intensity. Although the gain margin is generally reduced by the use of multiple phase shifts, it is still large enough for most practical purposes if the phase shifts are suitably optimized.

    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...

    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...
