Abstract

See full text

A microlaser having input and output mirrors defining a microlaser cavity, a solid active dielectric medium disposed in the microlaser cavity, and a pumping mechanism which pumps the microlaser and which includes at least one vertical cavity semiconductor laser. The microlaser may also include a microoptical focusing device, passive and/or active cavity switches. A plurality of such microlasers can be assembled to form a bidimensional network.
