An optical pulse injection locking technique is employed to generate shorter pulses from a passively modelocked quantum dot laser. The optical pulse injection locking enables the coherent addition of phase-locked longitudinal mode groups from two separate modelocked lasers without the use of stabilisation control loops, thus increasing the spectral… (More)
A hybrid mode-locked fiber laser was built by using a PDMS/SWCNTs film as a saturable absorber. The system allows for a high repetition rate of 4 GHz, while achieving pulse widths of 730 fs.
Spectral interferometry is used to measure the dispersion of a quantum dot semiconductor optical amplifier under various injection current values in the wavelength range of 1200 to 1340 nm, spanning ground and first excited state.
