Lasers & Sources

Q-switched ceramic lasers for remote sensing
A resonantly-pumped, tunable, Q-switched holmium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet ceramic laser generates high energy and high beam quality in the 2μm region.
Coherent arrays of fiber lasers appear scalable to weapons-class (100kW) powers with near-perfect beam quality in rugged and compact packages.
12 September 2014
Organic LEDs with photonic structures incorporating zinc oxide and a polyfluorene derivative as cathode and emissive layers, respectively, lead to high efficiencies and electrically-driven lasing capabilities.
