First, the possibility of semiconductor laser induced free carrier reflection in a few typical semiconductors was investigated. When used in telecommunication through the atmosphere this should allow modulation up to 100 MHz. Secondly an all optical semiconductor switch was used to Q-switch a waveguide CO2 laser.
