'Phase portraits' for characterizing advanced lasers

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


In this study, it is demonstrated that the 'phase portrait' of instantaneous time versus frequency gives valuable information on the transient and stability characteristics of fixed and tunable semiconductor lasers. From the recognizable shapes in the portrait, the deficiencies in the laser are easily identified and the impact of frequency and power deviations can be assessed.
