Nonabsorbing mirrors for quantum-well colliding pulse mode-locked lasers
MetadataShow full item record
We present results from GaAs/AlGaAs quantum-well colliding-pulse mode-locked lasers emitting pulses at 830 nm with a repetition rate of 20 GHz. In particular we investigate the effects of nonabsorbing mirrors on the output power characteristics of these devices in mode-locking operation. Under best mode-locking conditions, the lasers with nonabsorbing mirrors show ~10% shorter pulses (1.84 ps) and narrower radio-frequency peaks but operate with less average power. © 2011 IEEE.

Colliding pulse mode locking is achieved at repetition rates of 126 GHz with pulsewidths as short ...
A low jitter passively mode locked laser diode at 40 GHz using regenerative feedback via an optical fiber loopHaji, M.; Kelly, A.; Hou, L.; Bryce, A.; Arnold, J.; Ironside, Charlie (2011)Mode-locked laser diodes (MLLDs) are excellent candidates for generating ultrashort high frequency pulses for a number of applications. Although more prone to noise than active MLLDs, passive MLLDs do not require any ...
