Abstract

This paper reports on experimental and theoretical calculations based on a single mode rate equation model of a quantum well laser subject to strong external optical injection. Semiconductor laser diodes provide a technologically important system to investigate both high-speed and nonlinear dynamics and noise processes in lasers. However, because of the very short time scales on which the dynamics occur, it is difficult to measure the time dependent behavior directly. Hence, Fourier domain measurements must be combined with model calculations in order to extract detailed information about the nature of the dynamics. A number of very interesting instabilities is found as the amount of injected power and the degree of detuning between the master and the slave laser is varied.
