• Understanding the characteristics of semiconductor lasers
  • Horizontal cavity DFB lasers
  • Electrical pumping
  • Optical output power
  • Optical modes in diode lasers
  • Wavelength shift due to temperature change and injection current variation

What you will gain from the practicum

  • You will learn the fundamentals of semiconductor lasers – how they work, what influences their characteristics and what makes a laser beam different from the beam of a flashlight. It gives quick understanding about laser-based novel applications such as optical communication.
  • Valuable documentation of the results.
  • Team-based working experience in a modern research environment.
