Vertival-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) are one of the most promising new developments in laser physics. Covering such a wide range of topics such as operation principles, design considerations and performance measurements, this book is the first of its kind in that it provides readers with a comprehensive account of the latest technological developments in VCSEL devices. In fact, all the chapters were written by pioneers and key experts who have exclusive access to the most up-to-date innovations in the respective fields. The readers will be exposed to all the crucial aspects of VCSEL devices. Theories and simulations as well as experiments are discussed in the book.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers (or VCSELs) are relatively new semiconductor laser devices. … This book has been edited to cover basic concepts, aspects of the device’s technology and application areas of VCSELs. The different chapters are written by leading experts in the field … . The book is not only intended for scientists and engineers who are specialists in the field, but also for graduate students … . I can recommend this book to scientists and engineers working on or with VCSELs." (Jan Danckaert and Erik Stijns, Physicalia, Vol. 25 (4), 2003)

"This book includes the basic concepts, device technology, and application areas of VCSELs … . this book is the first kind in that it provides readers with a comprehensive account of the latest technological developments in VCSEL devices. In fact all the chapters are written by pioneers and key experts … . Readers will come to appreciate all the crucial aspects of VCSEL devices. … It is an excellent reference and an exclusive course book and I can recommend it without any reservations."
