Abstract:

The Laser-Materials Interaction Laboratory at the Center for High Technology Materials of the University of New Mexico is devoted to the study of a broad range of laser spectroscopic probes of semiconductor and nonlinear-materials, fabrication processes and optoelectronic devices. Much of this work is being carried out in conjunction with the Optoelectronics Research Center Program at CHTM which is also partially funded by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research. Significant progress has been made in this reporting period in a number of areas including laser-induced photo-degradation of the GaAs surface, studies of grating-coupling into surface-plasma modes at a metal-dielectric interface, electro-optic and nonlinear optical effects in PLZT thin films, and resonant-periodic-gain surface-emitting semiconductor lasers. Brief synopses of this work are presented here. More details are provided in the attached reprints and preprints. jes
