We provide a numerical proof of concept of a stabilization mechanism for BAS laser sources. The scheme is based on the simultaneous introduction of in-phase two-dimensional modulations on the refractive index and pump (gain). We numerically proof total stabilization in BAS laser sources, both in space and time. We also examine the interplay between the index and gain modulations and the effect of the slow relaxation of carriers on the stabilization performance.

Intracavity stabilization of broad area lasers by structured delayed optical feedback.

The influence of structured delayed optical feedback (SDOF) on a broad area laser is investigated experimentally. SDOF is realized with a miniature-sized convex external mirror. The setup takes into

Suppression of modulation instability in broad area semiconductor amplifiers.

It is shown that a two-dimensional periodic modulation of the pump profile can suppress the modulation instability in broad emission area semiconductor amplifiers.
