Illustration of the device architecture for the reflective cell with a silicon backplane.
Spectral characteristics of the laser sample. The transmission spectrum of the sample is plotted on the primary axis and shows the absorption due to the PM597 dye as well as the long-wavelength side of the photonic band-gap. The secondary axis shows the unsaturated fluorescence curve as well as the laser emission spectrum when optically excited with the Nd:YAG laser.
Plot of the output pulse energy of the LC laser as a function of the input pulse energy from the Nd:YAG laser up to (a) 10 and (b) . Results are presented for the conventional glass cell (closed squares), antireflection coated cell (open circles), and the reflective cell with a silicon backplane (closed triangles). The gradient of the straight lines in (a) represents the slope efficiencies.
The excitation threshold and slope efficiency values recorded for the three laser cells.
