Laser Systems (PL)

This group encompasses novel laser system development for a broad range of scientific, industrial, medical, remote sensing and other directed-energy applications. The group addresses technical issues concerning sources that cover the full spectral range, including: ultraviolet, visible, infrared, terahertz and microwave. Strong overlap with other technical groups that study and develop laser techniques and technologies brings together researchers and engineers to produce sources with unique performance, such as high-power, ultra-short pulses and high coherence.

Upcoming Applied Optics Feature Issue
The Laser Systems Technical Group will be organizing a feature issue of Applied Optics on near- to mid-IR (1-13 µm) III-V semiconductor lasers.

This special issue will focus on recent advances in the field of III-V semiconductor lasers emitting in the near- to mid-infrared spectral regions, with particular emphasis on devices that emit radiation with wavelengths between 1 and 13 µm. 

Submissions for this feature issue will be accepted from 1 May2017 until 1 June 2017.
