'Optically pumped' laser closer to improving processing speed of sensors

A multi-institutional team of researchers, led by University of Arkansas engineering professor Shui-Qing "Fisher" Yu and a leading Arkansas semiconductor equipment manufacturer, have made significant improvements to a new kind of laser, a semiconducting device that is injected with light, similar to an injection of electrical current. This "optically pumped" laser, which is made of germanium tin grown on silicon substrates, could lead to faster micro-processing speed at much lower cost.
