Semiconductor Lasers and Heterojunction LEDs presents an introduction to the subject of semiconductor lasers and heterojunction LEDs. The book reviews relevant basic solid-state and electromagnetic principles; the relevant concepts in solid state physics; and the p-n junctions and heterojunctions. The text also describes stimulated emission and gain; the relevant concepts in electromagnetic field theory; and the modes in laser structures. The relation between electrical and optical properties of laser diodes; epitaxial technology; binary III-V compounds; and diode fabrication are also considered. The book further tackles the heterojunction devices of alloys other than GaAs-AlAs; the devices for special applications; distributed-feedback lasers; and the transient effects in laser diodes. Students taking courses in semiconductor lasers and heterojunction LEDs will find the book useful.

The European Community regards training as a priority area and has therefore developed a series of programmes in the field of vocational training. This book is the result of a pilot project selected under two of these Community Action Programmes. It was initially selected under the COMETT programme, concerned with the development of continuing vocational training in the European Community. Moreover, it was one of the few selected projects to receive further funding under a second selection in the context of the LEONARDO DA VINCI Action Programme for the implementation of a European Community Vocational Training policy. It is with great pleasure that I present the outcome of this project which embodies one of the fundamental objectives of the LEONARDO DA VINCI Programme -training for new technologies in SMEs, which make a significant contribution to economic development in Europe. K DRAXLER Director Directorate General XXII European Commission x Acknowledgements The Volume Editor gratefully acknowledges funding by the LEONARDO DA VINCI Programme of the Commission of the European Community and by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science and Transport whose financial support has made the EuroLaser Academy a reality and has led directly to the generation ofthis handbook. He is also indebted to Director Dr. Klaus Draxler, Head of the LEONARDO DA VINCI Programme, DG XXII of the Commission of the European Community, moreover to Director General Raul Kneucker, Minister's Advisor Helmut Schacher and Mrs. Friederike Pranckl-Kloepfer from the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science and Transport.

The field of nonlinear fiber optics has grown substantially since the First Edition of Nonlinear Fiber Optics, published in 1989. Like the First Edition, this Second Edition is a comprehensive, tutorial, and up-to-date account of nonlinear optical phenomena in fiber optics. It synthesizes widely scattered research material and presents it in an accessible manner for students and researchers already engaged in or wishing to enter the field of nonlinear fiber optics. Particular attention is paid to the importance of nonlinear effects in the design of optical fiber communication systems. This is a completely new book containing either new sections or major revisions in every chapter. Major changes in Soliton-based Communication Systems New section on Photonic Switching New section on the Nonlinear Fiber-loop Mirror Section on Second-harmonic Generation will be expanded to include new research material Two new chapters have been added on Fiber Amplifiers and Fiber Lasers, two major research areas which have grown significantly during the last 4-5 years All references have been completely updated

Surface emitting semiconductor lasers (SELs) are currently extending semiconductor laser art to higher performance levels with new applications. This book reviews all the basic types of SELs, including vertical cavity, etched-mirror integrated beam deflectors, and grating out-coupled devices. Written by outstanding contributors to the field, the book also addresses such topics as edge-emitting arrays, thermal management, coherence, and external and monolithic phase locking for all types of semiconductor lasers. This text will be of interest to researchers in semiconductor lasers, communications, computers, laser radar, manufacturing, medicine, nonlinear optics, and spectroscopy. * First complete review of the field of surface emitting lasers. * Discusses the practical aspects of thermal considerations, coherence, and external and monolithic phase locking for all types of semiconductor lasers. * Emphasizes the affect of SELs on large area optical computing and neural networks. * Explains how SELs aloow for coherent, large-area optical emissions, resulting in high optical output power and narrow beam divergence. * Features chapters detailing why SELs are key components in opto-electronic integrated circuits (OEICs), the optical analog of electrical integrated circuits.
