Chaotic synchronization of two directly modulated semiconductor lasers with negative delayed optoelectronic feedback is investigated and this scheme is found to be useful for efficient bidirectional communication between the lasers. A symmetric bidirectional coupling is identified as a suitable method for isochronal synchronization of such lasers. The optimum values of coupling and feedback strength that can provide maximum quality of synchronization are identified. This method is successfully employed for encoding/decoding both analog and digital messages. The importance of a symmetric coupling is demonstrated by studying the variation of decoding efficiency with respect to asymmetric coupling.

    Passive mode-locked pulses with repetition frequencies in the range 40 to 90 GHz were observed in blue-violet GaN-based quantum-well lasers without external cavities. The lasers had two-section geometry with built-in saturable absorber section. The individual pulses had durations as short as 3-5...

    A detailed study of the effect of p-doping of the active region on characteristics of long-wavelength InAs/GaAs QD lasers is performed. As the doping level increases, the characteristic temperature rises and the range of temperature stability for the threshold current density is broadened. In a...

    In this work we experimentally study mode-hopping in bulk semiconductor lasers. This stochastic process is ruled by Kramers statistics with a decay rate depending on the laser parameters of the temperature of the substrate and the pumping current. For a general combination of these parameters...

    Single slow–fast intensity pulses are generated by quickly increasing the pump from a below to an above threshold value during a finite time interval. Under particular conditions, a pulse appears after the pump perturbation has ended and with a significant delay. We demonstrate that this...

    We consider two GaAs-based laser materials emitting at telecommunication wavelengths, namely the dilute nitride (GaIn)(NAs) as well as Ga(AsSb), and model their optical properties by including scattering and dephasing on a microscopic basis. The theory shows an excellent agreement with...

    We have demonstrated extraordinary optical pulse generation with a peak-power of 55 W and pulse duration of 15 ps by intense electrical pulse excitation of a 401 nm GaInN laser diode (LD). Electrical pulse excitation of a GaInN LD which contained a thicker electron blocking layer gave rise to...
