International team's work will enable better understanding of optical transmitters
Posted: June 29, 2016
Five researchers on an international team have developed a new method of extracting information on the spectral broadening factor of laser diodes. The discovery was performed at the University of Paris-Saclay by Frédéric Grillot, Lecturer at Télécom ParisTech and Research Professor with The University of New Mexico's (UNM) Center for High Technology Materials (CHTM); Cheng Wang, Assistant Professor at Shanghai Tech and doctoral student at Télécom ParisTech; with the support of Marek Osiñski, Professor with UNM Electrical and Computer Engineering and CHTM; Kevin Schires with Telecom ParisTech; and Philip Poole with the National Research Council of Canada (NRC).
Their paper, "Thermally insensitive determination of the linewidth broadening factor in nanostructured semiconductor lasers using optical injection locking," has been published in the journal Scientific Reports, published by Nature Publishing Group, found online here: http://www.nature.com/articles/srep27825.
