PC and/or access to network for modelling. Equipment in Optoelectronics Laboratory 2E3.25 is available for the measurements.
Resources:
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.
Outcome:
Recently there 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.
