Mode-locking via active gain modulation in quantum cascade lasers Conference Paper uri icon


  • A mode-locking mechanism by active gain modulation is studied numerically and experimentally. The parameter window for the emission of stable pulse trains was found. Pulses as short as 3ps (∼0.5pJ) were characterized by second-order autocorrelation. ©2009 Optical Society of America.
