Cyclic three-phase amplitude jitter in mode-locked semiconductor lasers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleOtherpeer-review


A numerical model of a mode-locked semiconductor laser operated at the third harmonic of its cavity resonance predicts cyclic variations in the amplitudes of the three pulses circulating the cavity. These variations are phase-locked because of coupling via the carrier density, and are explained using simple rules.
