  • Stabilization of Broad Area Semiconductor Laser Sources 

    Medina Pardell, Judith; Ahmed, W. W.; Kumar, Shubham; Botey Cumella, Muriel; Herrero Simon, Ramon; Staliunas, Kestutis (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We numerically proof the stabilization of broad area semiconductor laser sources by introducing simultaneous in-phase two-dimensional modulations on the refractive index and on the pump (gain). We also examine the interplay ...

    We present a new technique based on a dissipation induced modulation instability, caused by unbalanced spectral dissipation for signal and idler waves, with applications in amplifiers and parametric oscillators but especially ...
  • Phononic crystal device as a self-collimator for laser induced ultrasound

    Laser generated ultrasound has gained interest as an alternative source of ultrasound thanks to its remote operation, high resolution in the excitation area and broad frequency band. However, one of its drawbacks is the ...
  • Material defect reconstruction by non-destructive testing with laser induced ultrasonics 

    Mohamed Selim, Hossameldin; Delgado Prieto, Miquel; Trull Silvestre, José Francisco; Pico Vila, Rubén; Cojocaru, Crina (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Aligned with current research efforts and industrial applications on nondestructive testing, in this work, a hybrid system combining remotely induced laser ultrasonics with conventional transducer detection is studied for ...
  • Management of Light Patterns Based on Local Hilbert Transform 

    Staliunas, Kestutis; Ahmed, W.; Botey Cumella, Muriel; Herrero Simon, Ramon; Hayran, Zeki; Kurt, H. (2018)
    Conference report

    We propose a new approach of optical field management based on a local Hilbert transform, where the non-Hermitian potentials generating arbitrary vector fields of directionality p(\vec r), with desired shapes and topologies ...
  • Self-collimation in 2D Complex P- and PT-symmetric systems 

    Botey Cumella, Muriel; Ahmed Waseem, Waqas Waseem; Herrero Simon, Ramon; Staliunas, Kestutis (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We predict the self-collimation phenomena (or equivalently, dynamical localization) in 2-dimensional P-symmetric and PT-symmetric complex potentials, with periodic modulations of both gain/loss and refractive index. ...
  • PT-axisymmetry for extraordinary field confinement 

    Botey Cumella, Muriel; Ahmed Waseem, Waqas Waseem; Herrero Simon, Ramon; Staliunas, Kestutis (International Society for Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Optical Parity-Time (PT-) symmetric systems support unusual properties when the symmetric coupling between internal modes is broken. We propose a new class of quasiperiodic PT-axisymmetric systems which lead to a simultaneous ...
  • Self-collimated beams in 2D complex periodic lattices from P- to PT-symmetry 

    Ahmed Waseem, Waqas Waseem; Botey Cumella, Muriel; Herrero Simon, Ramon; Staliunas, Kestutis (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We analyze self-collimation in two-dimensional periodic complex lattices. We consider P-symmetric and PT-symmetric complex lattices with different geometries, where the periodic modulations of both refractive index and ...
  • PT-axisymmetric VCSELs with linear central defect 

    Ahmed Waseem, Waqas Waseem; Botey Cumella, Muriel; Herrero Simon, Ramon; Staliunas, Kestutis (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Semiconductor Lasers and particularly Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) are important laser sources used for many purposes. However, the applications of these lasers are mainly restricted by their strongly ...
  • Vertical Azimuth Display simulator for wind-Doppler lidar error assessment 

    Tiana Alsina, Jordi; Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco; Gutiérrez Antuñano, Miguel Ángel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This works presents a simplified Vertical Azimuth Display (VAD) motion simulator for off-shore wind lidars. The simulator is rooted to the case of a conically-scanning lidar (e.g., the Zephyr lidar), where the wind speed ...
  • Stabilization of broad area semiconductor lasers 

    Kumar, Shubham; Ahmed Waseem, Waqas Waseem; Herrero Simon, Ramon; Botey Cumella, Muriel; Staliunas, Kestutis (International Society for Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Broad Area Semiconductor edge-emitting lasers typically display self-focusing nonlinearity due to the refractive index dependence on the population inversion. It induces the homogeneous solution instability, multi-transverse ...
