Extraction of Coupling Coefficient for Coherent 2x1 VCSEL Array (JTh3A.3)
Presenter: Nusrat Jahan, UIUC
The coupling coefficient of a 2x1 optically coherent microcavity laser array can be experimentally determined. We show the extracted coupling coefficient varies for arrays depending on in-phase or out-of-phase coherent operation, in agreement with theory.
