    • Mar 2010 7,689,086  Resonant leaky-mode optical devices and associated methods

      Optical devices with versatile spectral attributes are provided that are implemented with one or more modulated and homogeneous layers to realize leaky-mode resonance operation and corresponding versatile spectral-band design. The first and/or higher multiple evanescent diffraction orders are applied to excite one or more leaky modes. The one- or two-dimensional periodic structure, fashioned by proper distribution of materials within each period, can have a resulting symmetric or asymmetric profile to permit a broadened variety of resonant leaky-mode devices to be realized. Thus, the attributes of the optical device permit, among other things, adjacent, distinct resonance frequencies or wavelengths to be produced, convenient shaping of the reflection and transmission spectra for such optical device to be accomplished, and the wavelength resonance locations to be precisely controlled so as to affect the extent to which the leaky modes interact with each other. Further, the profile asymmetry allows for the precise spectral spacing at interactive leaky modes so as to provide greater flexibility in optical device design.

    • Oct 2000 6,154,480  Vertical-cavity laser and laser array incorporating guided-mode resonance effects and method for making the same

      A new class of vertical-cavity lasers (VCLs) is disclosed. Conventional VCLs contain an active region enclosed by Bragg-mirror stacks of 30-100 quarter-wave layers. The new VCLs can be fabricated without Bragg mirrors by replacing them with efficient diffractive (guided-mode resonance (GMR)) mirrors with much fewer layers, for example, two or three layers. This application provides optical power flow across and along the VCL gain region, thereby greatly increasing the laser efficiency and reducing the threshold mirror reflectance needed for lasing, relative to conventional VCLs. Theoretical and experimental results show that GMR mirrors exhibit high reflectance (theoretically, 100%; experimentally, in excess of 90%) in a narrow spectral band with well-defined polarization states. When incorporated in VCLs, the GMR mirrors yield single-mode, narrow-line, highly-polarized output light. The GMR-VCL is independent of any particular material system. An example fabrication process of GaAs-based VCLs includes molecular-beam epitaxial growth of the basic planar structure and multiple-quantum-well (InGaAs/GaAs for 980 nm wavelength) active layers, interferometric recording of the GMR grating, lithographic and reactive-ion-etch definition of individual VCL elements, and metallization and contacting. GMR-VCL arrays can also be fabricated; the diffractive element will phase-lock the individual lasers to produce exceptionally high optical power and coherence. GMR-VCL technology holds high potential to provide low-cost, high-speed sources for fiber optic communications and other applications.
