Abstract

The thirteen years that have intervened since the appearance of the second edition of this book have witnessed some important developments in the field of lasers and quantum electronics. Foremost among them are: phase-conjugate optics and its myriad applications, the long wavelength quaternary semiconductor laser, and the deepened understanding of the physics of semiconductor lasers—especially that applying to their current modulation and limiting linewidth, laser arrays and the related concept of supermodes, quantum well semiconductor lasers, the role of phase amplitude coupling in laser noise, and free-electron lasers. The present edition retains nearly all the material of the second edition. There are four new chapters on semiconductor lasers, quantum well lasers, free-electron lasers, and phase-conjugate optics. In addition, the chapters on laser noise and third-order nonlinear effects have been extensively revised.


Item Type:Book
Additional Information:© John Wiley & Sons. 3rd edition. I benefited from teaching the material and from feedback at Caltech by colleagues and students who aided me in tightening and improving numer- ous points throughout the book. To these individuals special thanks are due. I am grateful to my administrative assistant, Jana Mercado, for her assistance in preparing this edition. I also take pleasure in thanking the talented group of students and ex-students, especially K. Lau, K. Vahala, C. Harder, T. Koch, Μ. Cronin-Golomb, S. Kwong, and the late C. Lindsey, whose research efforts are responsible for much of the new material added to this edition. The material on quantum well lasers benefited greatly from my association with Y. Arakawa while David Crouch contributed a major part of the treatment of squeezed states. Amnon Yariv Pasadena, California September 1987
