Special Issue "Semiconductor Laser Dynamics: Fundamentals and Applications"
A special issue of Photonics (ISSN 2304-6732).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 September 2019).
As one of the most commonly used coherent light sources today, semiconductor lasers are essential components in many optical systems, such as for communication, storage, sensing and metrological applications, mainly as parts of photonic integrated systems. They can be linear Fabry-Pérot or ring type lasers, operating in narrow linewidth, single frequency or pulsed. Their numerous applications are ever increasing due to the unprecedented fabrication accuracy offered by photonic-integration technology, allowing total phase and intensity control of the generated laser light.
In such well-defined embedded setting the issues of reproducibility and long-term dynamical stability are becoming ever more important and should be taken into account in the design and fabrication of such laser systems. Since precise control of the relevant parameters, such as optical distances and group velocities, is well feasible, knowledge of the dynamical behaviour of semiconductor lasers in their dependence on parameter values, can successfully be applied to optimal design.
This Special Issue aims at presenting original state-of-the-art research articles dealing with dynamics and stability of semiconductor lasers in a broad sense with special emphasis on their operation in a photonic chip. Specifically, papers are solicited dealing with semiconductor lasers coupled to various kinds of external optical perturbations, such as delayed feedback, delayed coupling, optical injection, etc. Researchers are invited to submit their contributions to this Special Issue. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Semiconductor lasers
- Dynamics and stability
- Narrow linewidth lasers
- Feedback-induced dynamics
- Exceptional points
- Coupled lasers
- Reservoir computing
- Quantum dot laser dynamics
- Frequency combs
- Integrated lasers

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Photonics is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
