Optical injection in semiconductor ring lasers: backfire dynamics

by Gelens, L., Beri, S., Van der Sande, G., Danckaert, J., Calabretta, N., Dorren, H. J. S., Nötzel, R., Bente, E. A. J. M. and Smit, M. K.
Abstract:
We report on directional mode switching in semiconductor ring lasers through optical injection co-propagating with the lasing mode. The understanding of this novel feature in ring lasers is based on the particular structure of a two-dimensional asymptotic phase space. Our theoretical results are verified numerically and experimentally.
