A Surgical Semiconductor Laser With More Precision And Power
... Agrawal says that the new laser performed well in computer
simulations. Headds that since the inserted layers are made of the same semiconducting materials used in the other layers of the laser-- with a small amount of aluminum added to give them slightly different properties -- the new laser shouldn't besig...
