Advanced Laser Diode Reliability focuses on causes and effects of  degradations of state-of-the-art semiconductor laser diodes. It aims to provide a tool for linking practical measurements to physical diagnostics. To this purpose, it reviews the current technologies, addressing their peculiar details that can promote specific failure mechanisms. Two sections will support this kernel: a) Failure Analysis techniques, procedures and examples; b) Device-oriented laser modelling and parameter extraction.

Key Features

  • Talk about Natural continuity with the most widespread existing textbooks, published by Mitsuo Fukuda
  • Present the extension to new failure mechanisms, new technologies, new application fields, new environments
  • Introduce a specific self-consistent model for the physical description of a laser diode, expressed in terms of practically measurable quantities


Scientists and engineers working in Reliability of Photonic Devices and Students of advanced academic courses on Photonics and Reliability
