In this paper, we report on an experimental investigation of the bistable behavior of a 1550 nm single transverse and polarization mode vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) when subjected to orthogonal optical injection. As the master laser wavelength is scanned near the resonance wavelength of the depressed linearly polarized fundamental mode, and for a fixed injected power, the VCSEL exhibits two successive polarization switchings (PSs). Both PSs exhibit bistable regions in such a… CONTINUE READING
