Earlier, in 1962 Boyle and colleague, Don Nelson, developed the ruby laser in 1962, and with another colleague, David Thomas, he helped to develop the semiconductor injection laser
, which is found in many electronic appliances.
have laid the foundations for a new type of "plug-and-play" laser--the Raman injection laser
A GaAs injection laser
array that employs advanced "quantum well" technology is used to create the light pulses.
The contract, which runs through 2007, comprises a variety of custom-designed mounts optimized to reduce wavefront distortion for the project's Injection Laser
Panish - for conception and development of the first room- temperature continuous-wave semiconductor injection laser
with double heterostructure;
First Visible Light Emitting Diode and Semiconductor Injection Lasers
An IEEE Life Fellow, Holonyak is recognized for his career of pioneering contributions to the field of semiconductors, specifically in the areas of semiconductor alloys, heterojunctions, visible light-emitting diodes and injection lasers
His Nobel Prize-winning work was published in a 1963 paper, "A Proposed Class of Heterojunction Injection Lasers
," in the Proceedings of the IEEE.
Diego Olego, Philips Laboratories blue laser research department head stated, "The joint Cree-Philips effort will push the state of the art of gallium nitride (GaN) material and device technology to implement GaN injection lasers
