Surface-Emitting Laser: technology and applications
its emerging in 1980's, Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser
(VCSEL) has experienced rapid development and grown into a mature product
in many applications due to its advantages such as low cost, easy
coupling to fiber and scalability into 2D arrays etc. This presentation
will provide an introduction to VCSEL technologies and discuss its
various applications in fiber optical communication, optical sensing,
high-power source for pumping and imaging etc.
Zhilong Rao received his M.S. in electrical engineering and
Ph.D. in physics from Stanford University where he developed
semiconductor lasers for near field applications. Currently, Dr. Rao is
Product Engineering Manager at JDSU, where he works on semiconductor
lasers (VCSELs, tunable DFB laser etc),
detectors and photonic integrated chip products used in optical
communication and other optical applications.
Instruction to Cypress Room, CIS Building, Stanford
Enter Stanford university through Palm Drive toward
the Oval Building, make right turn into Campus Drive (west), follow Campus drive through 4 stop signs, turn
left at the 5th stop sign into Via Ortega, pass Serra (first intersection) then Via Pueblo, park in the
parking lot at right side (Free parking on Weekend). Walk back passing Via Pueblo to Serra and turn right into Serra.
The CIS building is at your right side on Serra.
Walk to the short stone steps up. The Cypress room of the CIS building is
at you right side. (At the intersection of
"Campus Drive" and "Via Ortega"
