Spatial hole burning in actively mode-locked quantum cascade lasers Conference Paper uri icon


  • A theoretical study of active mode-locking in quantum cascade lasers including spatial hole-burning is presented. It is found that spatial hole-burning reduces the pulse duration at the expense of slight pulse instability and strongly structured pulse shapes. ©2009 Optical Society America.
