The intracavity gain dynamics of an external cavity semiconductor hybrid mode-locked laser is measured under multiwavelength operation. The results show a temporal skew between pulses corresponding to different wavelength channels. A measurement of the temporal evolution of the gain reveals a slow gain depletion, avoiding carrier heating and carrier cooling, and decreasing self-phase modulation effects and gain competition between wavelength channels, making multiwavelength operation possible.
