* Provides theory-based explanations underpinned by a vast range of experimental studies on optical feedback, including conventional, phase conjugate and frequency- filtered feedback in standard, commercial and single-stripe semiconductor lasers
* Includes the classic Lang-Kobayashi equation model, through to more recent theory, with new developments in techniques for solving delay differential equations and bifurcation analysis
* Explores developments in self-mixing interferometry to produce sub-nanometre sensitivity in path-length measurements
* Reviews tunable single frequency semiconductor lasers and systems and their diverse range of applications in sensing and optical communications
* Emphasises the importance of synchronised chaotic semiconductor lasers using optical feedback and private communications systems
Unlocking Dynamical Diversity illustrates all theory using real world examples gleaned from international cutting-edge research. Such an approach appeals to industry professionals working in semiconductor lasers, laser physics and laser applications and is essential reading for researchers and postgraduates in these fields.
