• Fiber laser system for the detection of trace gas 

      Valiunas, Jonas Kestutis (2017)
      The research presented in this thesis is on the development of a trace gas detection system based on intracavity absorption spectroscopy (ICAS). The developed system was capable of detecting nitrous oxide (N2O) and acetylene ...
    • Multiwavelength erbium-ytterbium co-doped fiber laser / by Mansour Dastmalchi. 

      Dastmalchi, Mansour (2007)
      A fiber ring laser, using erbium-ytterbium co-doped double clad fiber is proposed and demonstrated to produce a medium power multiwavelength fiber laser. The experimental results show that the ring resonator configuration ...
    • Plasmonic nanostructure on a tapered fiber for chemical detection 

      Trevisanutto, Joshua Ottorino (2017)
      A simple, cost effective technique to manufacture plasmonic nanostructures as a Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) substrate was investigated. The plasmonic structure of gold nanorods was developed on the surface ...
    • An ytterbium-doped fiber laser at 1.1 um 

      Chaboyer, Zachary Jordan (2013-02-12)
      A pulsed ytterbium-doped fiber laser is proposed and developed. A length of samarium-doped fiber was inserted into the laser cavity to induce passive Q-switching. The laser oscillated in the continuous wave, Q-switched ...
