Efficiency enhancement in a microcavity solid-state dye laser with Bragg grating reflectors
2010 (English)In: Central European Journal of Physics, ISSN 1644-3608, ISSN 1895-1082 print, Vol. 8, no 2, 202-206 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Bragg grating reflectors placed along microcavity facets can improve the efficiency of a polymer dye laser built with such a microcavity. The impact of different reflector designs on the mode pattern and resonance frequencies of the microcavity is numerically simulated and analyzed. This rigorous physical model is based on solving the Maxwell equations and includes such material properties as absorption, dispersion, fluorescence and optical gain. In certain cases, an asymmetrical layout of the reflectors can be more preferable than the pair of reflectors located on opposite sides of the microcavity as it is implemented for typical design.
