Handbook of Optical Microcavities by Anthony H. W. Choi

By Anthony H. W. Choi

An optical hollow space confines mild inside of its constitution and constitutes a vital part of a laser gadget. in contrast to conventional gasoline lasers, semiconductor lasers are continuously a lot smaller in dimensions, making optical confinement extra severe than ever. during this ebook, glossy equipment that keep watch over and manage gentle on the micrometer and nanometer scales through the use of numerous hollow space geometries and show optical resonance from ultra-violet (UV) to infra-red (IR) bands throughout a number of fabric structures are explored.

The e-book has a entire selection of chapters that conceal a variety of issues relating resonance in optical cavities and are contributed through best researchers within the box. the themes contain conception, layout, simulation, fabrication, and characterization of micrometer- and nanometer-scale buildings and units that help hollow space resonance through quite a few mechanisms corresponding to Fabry–Pérot, whispering gallery, photonic bandgap, and plasmonic modes. The chapters speak about optical cavities that resonate from UV to IR wavelengths and are in keeping with favorite III-V fabric structures, together with Al, In, and Ga nitrides, ZnO, and GaAs.
