A New Antenna-feedback Scheme to Achieve Emission in a Narrow Beam from Metal-cavity Semiconductor Lasers
SUMMARY The invention is based on a distributed antenna-coupling (feedback) scheme and specially designed distributed feedback (DFB) metallic cavity grating. By ensuring the predesigned phase condition, the mode traveling inside the waveguide is coupled/phase-locked to the mode traveling outside on the top metal, hence establishing a standing-wave...
