ABSTRACT
Experiments reveal that the physical characteristics related to absorptive bistability, such as lasing threshold, hysteresis width, and carrier redistribution, are greatly altered when the absorber position is changed from the middle section to one of the end-facet sections in a three-section laser diode.

    Optical bistability has been observed for the first time in a room-temperature InGaAsP/InP amplifier. Switching occurred at an optical input power of about 3 µW, corresponding to a change in the refractive index of 5 × 10[sup -4]. The results are discussed in terms of a light-induced...

    GaInAsP/InP distributed feedback lasers have been fabricated with a simple new design in which the grating is etched into the top of a mass-transported buried heterostructure. Single-frequency operation with sidemodes lower than - 32 dB and threshold currents as low as 16 mA have been achieved.

    We report linewidth narrowing for 1.3-μm InGaAsP distributed feedback lasers with either a long cavity length or a detuned Bragg wavelength. The narrowest linewidth measured was 3 MHz at 6 mW for a 780-μm long-cavity laser, and was 8 MHz at 5.5 mW for a 250-μm regular-length laser with...

    We report on period doubling in a directly modulated InGaAsP semiconductor laser at 1.3 μm. This behavior is obtained for modulation frequencies between fr and 1.6fr, where fr is the laser resonant frequency measured under weak current modulation. The domain of period doubling as well as the...
