A previously presented method for modeling Kolmogorov phase fluctuations over a finite aperture is both formalized and improved on. The method relies on forming an initial low-resolution Kolmogorov phase screen from direct factorization of a covariance. The resolution of the screen is then increased by a randomized interpolation to produce a Kolmogorov… (More)
The paper describes a volumetric approach to depth estimation for robot navigation with use of only an approximately calibrated translating camera. Our approach is related to techniques for photo-realistic object reconstruction but with the emphasis on issues associated with navigation. The technique performs three-dimensional matching by a process of image… (More)
The spontaneous-emission factor in an unstable-resonator semiconductor laser is enhanced by more than 2 orders of magnitude compared with that of a Fabry-Perot semiconductor laser having the same volume. A clear linkage has been observed among the spontaneous-emission factor, the waveguiding property, and the width of the lasing spectral envelope.
