Ultrasmall microdisk and microring lasers based on InAs/InGaAs/GaAs quantum dots
Ultrasmall microring and microdisk lasers with an asymmetric air/GaAs/Al0.98Ga0.02As waveguide and an active region based on InAs/InGaAs/GaAs quantum dots emitting around 1.3 μm were fabricated and studied. The diameter D of the microrings and microdisks was either 2 or 1.5 μm, and the inner diameter d of the microrings varied from 20% to 70% of the outer diameter D. The microring with D = 2 μm and d = 0.8 μm demonstrated a threshold pump power as low as 1.8 μW at room temperature. Lasing was observed up to 100°C owing to the use of quantum dots providing high confinement energy both for electrons and holes. Tuning spectral positions of the whispering gallery modes via changing the inner diameters of the microrings was demonstrated.

We introduce an analytical approach to describe the multi-state lasing phenomenon in quantum dot lasers. We show that the key parameter is the hole-to-electron capture rate ratio. If it is lower than a certain critical value, the complete quenching of ground-state lasing takes place at high injection levels. At higher values of the ratio, the model predicts saturation of the ground-state power. This explains the diversity of experimental results and their contradiction to the conventional rate equation model. Recently found enhancement of ground-state lasing in p-doped samples and temperature dependence of the ground-statepower are also discussed.
Studies of electronic transitions in the photoconverters with In0.4Ga0.6As quantum well-dots (QWD) layers have been carried out. It is shown that the quantum yield and electroluminescence spectral peaks are well described by e1-lh1 and e1-hh1 optical transitions in the quantum well with the same average composition and thickness. The energy of the optical transitions shifts toward longer wavelengths with an increase in the number of QWD layers. The calculated shifts of electron and hole levels due to the redistribution of elastic strain between In0.4Ga0.6As QWDs and GaAs spacer layers demonstrated a very good agreement with the experimental data.

CLEO®/Europe-EQEC targets university and industry scientists and researchers as well as students and graduates. The conference series has established a strong tradition as the largest, most comprehensive and prestigious gathering of optics and photonics researchers and engineers in Europe. With technical co-sponsorship provided by the European Physical Society (EPS), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Photonics Society, and the Optical Society (OSA), CLEO®/Europe and EQEC have a strong international presence in the complementary research areas of laser science, photonics and quantum electronics.
The dynamics of a two-component Davydov-Scott (DS) soliton with a small mismatch of the initial location or velocity of the high-frequency (HF) component was investigated within the framework of the Zakharov-type system of two coupled equations for the HF and low-frequency (LF) fields. In this system, the HF field is described by the linear Schrödinger equation with the potential generated by the LF component varying in time and space. The LF component in this system is described by the Korteweg-de Vries equation with a term of quadratic influence of the HF field on the LF field. The frequency of the DS soliton`s component oscillation was found analytically using the balance equation. The perturbed DS soliton was shown to be stable. The analytical results were confirmed by numerical simulations.
Radiation conditions are described for various space regions, radiation-induced effects in spacecraft materials and equipment components are considered and information on theoretical, computational, and experimental methods for studying radiation effects are presented. The peculiarities of radiation effects on nanostructures and some problems related to modeling and radiation testing of such structures are considered.
Let G be a semisimple algebraic group whose decomposition into the product of simple components does not contain simple groups of type A, and P⊆G be a parabolic subgroup. Extending the results of Popov , we enumerate all triples (G, P, n) such that (a) there exists an open G-orbit on the multiple flag variety G/P × G/P × . . . × G/P (n factors), (b) the number of G-orbits on the multiple flag variety is finite.
