Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Optically controllable microlasers and 3D light confinement based on cavity solitons in vertical-cavity devices

Abstract

Bistable microlasers in a broad-area vertical-cavity semiconductor laser with frequency-selective feedback are demonstrated. It is argued that mode-locking of these lasers provides a route to three-dimensional light confinement.
