PC and/or access
to network for modelling. Equipment in Optoelectronics Laboratory 2E3.25 is available for the measurements.
At the end of the project the student should be familiar
with the basic principles of operation of semiconductor lasers, developed a user friendly computer program
to study laser arrays and, time
permitting, gained familiarity with experimental techniques to characterise
semiconductor laser arrays.
has been increasing interest in developing high power semiconductor sources for applications including, for example,
optical pumping, free-space communications and material processing. One way of achieving
high output optical power is to operate many semiconductor lasers in an array. The aim
of this project is to develop a computer program to compute and visualise the near and far
field intensity profiles expected from laser diode arrays. Time permitting, there could be the
possibility of comparing the computed results with those measured in the laboratory from in-house
fabricated lasers and arrays.
