We present a stochastic procedure to investigate the correlation spectra of quantum dot superluminescent diodes. The classical electric field of a diode is formed by a polychromatic superposition of many independent stochastic oscillators. Assuming fields with individual carrier frequencies, Lorentzian linewidths and amplitudes we can form any relevant experimental spectrum using a least square fit. This is illustrated for Gaussian and Lorentzian spectra, Voigt profiles and box shapes…

Coherent and thermal light: Tunable hybrid states with second-order coherence without first-order coherence

We demonstrate the realization of a new hybrid state of light that is simultaneously spectrally broadband, i.e., in-coherent in first order, and exhibits a laserlike normalized intensity correlation
