High-Q Transfer in Nonlinearly Coupled Mode-Locked Semiconductor Lasers

Abstract

A novel four-wave mixing-based injection locking method was demonstrated earlier, whereby the optical and RF stability of a mode-locked high-Q ring laser is successfully transferred to an orthogonally coupled colliding pulse mode-locked (CPM) laser. Four-wave mixing in the common monolithically integrated saturable absorber is used to couple the crossed… (More)
