A photoluminescence study of emission from a periodically perforated quantum well at 77 K is presented. Good agreement is observed between numerical predictions and experimental results. The effects of pore diameter on peak emission wavelength and relative emission from second excited subbands are analyzed. The results are found to be consistent with… (More)
An electroformed, three-dimensional stylus Paul trap was designed to confine a single atomic ion for use as a sensor to probe the electric-field noise of proximate surfaces. The trap was microfabricated with the UV-LIGA technique to reduce the distance of the ion from the surface of interest. We detail the fabrication process used to produce a 150 μm tall… (More)
A monolithically integrated dual wavelength semiconductor laser for optical heterodyning is presented. We present a novel laser design which employs surface etched DBR gratings in order to obtain lasing at very narrow line widths.
A semiconductor laser with active layer consisting of a patterned quantum dot lattice demonstrates evidence of miniband formation resulting from inter-dot coupling. Excited state lasing is thought to result from a phonon bottleneck-like effect.
