A stability analysis of bistable laser diodes, which gives a first analytical explanation of the recently observed high-speed bistable switching and self-pulsation, is presented by introducing two key parameters. It is shown that switching and self-pulsation are associated with two time scales. Turn-on and turn-off dynamics can be characterized by two(More)
The principles of optical fiber communication and optical data storage have evolved over the past decade into industry standards for transmission, distribution, storage, and archival of digital audio, multimedia, and computer data. The fundamentals of these sophisticated systems are traditionally taught in the lecture hall, and laboratory exposure to the(More)
A significant source of uncertainty in the prediction of the apparent optical properties of the ocean is the geometrical distribution of the radiance field and its variation with respect to time and space; this uncertainty directly affects attempts to use measurements of reflectance and attenuation for the diagnosis of ocean constituents. Uncertainties in(More)
