Feedback is obtained from multilayer semiconductor-stack reflectors, shown as mirrors in the figure. Light propagates perpendicularly to the active layer. The device has a strained-layer single quantum well, which emits at 980 nm. Vertical-cavity-surface-emitting lasers may provide many advantages: the device can be fabricated by a fully monolithic process and can be densely packed into a twodimensional array, the operation will be single mode as the mode spacing is large (about 20 nm), and a circular beam is achievable.

A thin acoustooptic Bragg cell can also be constructed using thin film of electrooptic materials deposited on dielectric plates. This is a surface-acoustic-wave (SAW) cell. In SAW cells, the interaction takes place at the thin surface. Usually two 28 2. Photons and Interactions A +n B .... : k 3 0 I -1 ! k3 I , Transducer : k3 , -:3--..

Wavelength-Tunable Distributed Feedback Lasers Wavelength tunability is a desirable property in a laser in coherent transmission and receiving systems. In multichannel frequency division multiplex (FDM) systems, the tuning range of the tunable laser used as a local oscillator limits the maximum number of channels. The popular structures for single-longitudinal-mode operation in DFB and DR lasers have to be modified to meet the required continuous tunability. An external cavity structure can be used to tune the laser; however, it is difficult to realize continuous wavelength tuning with an external cavity structure.
