By presenting both experimental and theoretical results, the distinguished authors consider solitary lasers with nano-structured material, as well as integrated devices with complex feedback sections
In so doing, they address such topics as the bifurcation theory of systems with time delay, analysis of chaotic dynamics, and the modeling of quantum transport
The book combines recent results of quantum dot laser modeling with mathematical details and an analytic understanding of nonlinear phenomena in semiconductor lasers and points out possible applications of lasers in cryptography and chaos control
They also address chaos-based cryptography as an example of the technical application of highly nonlinear laser systems.
This interdisciplinary approach makes it a unique and powerful source of knowledge for anyone intending to contribute to this field of research
