Superluminescent Lasers Overview

Superluminescent laser diodes (also sometimes called superluminescence diodes or superluminescent light-emitting diodes = superluminescent LEDs) are optoelectronic semiconductor devices that emit broadband optical radiation based on superluminescence. In terms of construction, they are similar to laser diodes, containing an electrically driven p–n junction and an optical waveguide. Importantly, however, SLDs lack optical feedback by reflections, so that no laser action can occur.
