Nonlinear mode mixing in dual-wavelength semiconductor lasers with tunnel junctions Academic Article uri icon


  • The authors demonstrate and study two- and three-wavelength generations in the semiconductor diode laser with a tunnel junction separating two different quantum-well active regions integrated within a single waveguide. To avoid resonant cross absorption of the modes at different frequencies and achieve phase matching, the laser waveguide is designed to generate the first-order transverse mode at a longer wavelength and the third-order mode at a shorter wavelength. Excellent agreement with the designed and measured device parameters is observed. Intracavity nonlinear mixing leading to sum-frequency and second-harmonic generation is demonstrated. © 2007 American Institute of Physics.
