Paper Abstract

Laser polarization control is revisited at the light of the possibilities offered by resonant gratings associated with the multilayer mirror of the laser. As compared with classical Brewster elements, resonant grating mirrors have a richer functionality in that they can achieve transverse mode control. Furthermore, they are fully planar monolithic elements which can be fabricated by batch technologies and lead to the utmost miniaturization of the laser module. A number of designs and experimental demonstrations are presented.
