Towards ultra fast pulse generation by gain-switching of diode pumped surface emitting semiconductor lasers
10th EPS-QEOD Europhoton Conference
28. August - 02. September
We present first results of our research towards ultra-short pulse generation in the sub-100 ps range based on cascaded gain-switched diodepumped vertical-cavity surface-emitting semiconductor lasers. In particular, we focus on the surface emitters themselves and on the dependence of the output parameters on the pump wavelength and the pump fluence.
