Abstract:

The overall program objective is to develop an on-chip UV mu-laser that is able to excite fluorescence from bio-aerosols. This objective requires that we design mu-lasers that have low threshold with directionality in their emission. Hence, there is a need to optimize the pumping geometry of the mu-disk and the shape for maximum output efficiency. The resulting non-circular shapes necessitated that we understand some principles of chaos theory.
