Research output: Contribution to journalConference articleResearchpeer-review


The important characteristics of actively mode-locked semiconductor lasers are identified and recent advances in numerical techniques for the optimisation of these characteristics are discussed. Numerical results from a comprehensive numerical model, the Transmission-Line Laser Model, illustrate the applicability of numerical models to the design and understanding of modelocked lasers.
