Abstract

The latest breakthroughs on the frontiers of semiconductor laser capabilities are presented. Achievements including the impressive advances in high-speed lasers with low pJ/bit energy consumption, high-power vertical external cavity surface emitting lasers (VECSELs), advances in Ill-nitrides, record-high temperature operation quantum dot lasers, the longest wavelength Type-I quantum well lasers to date, and the fascinating field of nanolasers with ultralow volume and threshold are all discussed.
