According to Evaldas Pabrėža, traditional CW laser designs encounter a great number of technical limitations. Especially Diode Pumped Solid State (DPSS) lasers. ON/OFF modulation is often limited to few kHz, power stability is heavily affected by environmental temperature, the beam shape can change upon change of the output power. PIC seems like a magic cure for all of these deficiencies.
But is it ready to be implemented in mass production and vast use in fields like laser spectroscopy, imaging or display?
