Edited Volume

This book deals with theoretical and experimental aspects of solid-state lasers, including optimum waveguide design of end pumped and diode pumped lasers. Nonlinearity, including the nonlinear conversion, up frequency conversion and chirped pulse oscillators are discussed. Some new rare-earth-doped lasers, including double borate and halide crystals, and feedback in quantum dot semiconductor nanostructures are included.

Thi-Qar University, Iraq

Amin H. Al-Khursan graduated from the Science College, Basrah University, where he obtained an MSc in Nuclear Track Detectors in 1992,working at the Science College, Thi-Qar University, Nassiriya in 1992, as assistant lecturer. In 1997, he returned to the Science College, Basrah University, as a PhD student and obtained a PhD in physics of “Quantum Dot Semiconductor Lasers” in October 2001, under the supervision of Professor R.S. Fyath, an electrical engineer, he became the first Iraqi researcher to work in the nanostructure field. Dr Al-Khursan worked as a lecturer in 2001, as an assistant professor in 2005, and then as a professor in 2010, all at the Science College, Thi-Qar University. Between 2007 and 2008, he received a fellowship from the Politecnico di Torino, Italy, with Professor Montrosset and M. Gioannini. Dr Al-Khursan founded the “Nassiriya Nanotechnology Research Laboratory (NNRL)” in 2010, where MSc and PhD groups from different Iraqi universities work. He has published 30 papers and has been a member of the editorial board of “Recent Patents in Electrical Engineering”, Bentham Science, since 2007, and “Physics Express”, Simplex Academic Publishers, since 2010, as well as three other Iraqi journals. He is also a member of IEEE Photonics Society and OSA.
