Nonlinear dynamics induced by external optical injection in semiconductor lasers
External optical injection of semiconductor lasers changes the resonant coupling characteristics between the circulating optical field in the laser cavity and the free carriers (gain medium). ChangesExpand

Four-wave mixing and optical modulation in a semiconductor laser
There is a direct connection between nearly degenerate four-wave mixing in a semiconductor laser and optical modulation in the laser field. It can be understood using a model of an unlocked,Expand

Small-signal analysis of modulation characteristics in a semiconductor laser subject to strong optical injection
Injection locking of a semiconductor laser can induce major changes in the modulation characteristics of the laser. A small-signal analysis using the lumped element model shows that both theExpand

Limit-cycle dynamics with reduced sensitivity to perturbations.
Limit-cycle oscillators are used to model a broad range of periodic nonlinear phenomena. Using the optically injected semiconductor laser as a paradigmatic example, we demonstrate that at specificExpand

Response characteristics of direct current modulation on a bandwidth-enhanced semiconductor laser under strong injection locking
The response characteristics of direct current modulation on an injection-locked semiconductor laser are investigated. When a semiconductor laser is strongly injection locked in a stable lockingExpand

Phase and amplitude characteristics of nearly degenerate four‐wave mixing in Fabry–Perot semiconductor lasers
The phase and amplitude characteristics of nearly degenerate four‐wave mixing in a semiconductor laser are studied. The experimental data can be quantitatively understood with a theoretical analysisExpand
