Demonstration of phase correlation in multiwavelength mode-locked semiconductor diode lasers
Abbreviated Journal Title
Wideband spectral phase correlation is demonstrated from a multiwavelength mode-locked semiconductor laser. By use of frequency-resolved optical gating techniques, significant phase correlation was observed between multiple intracavity oscillating wavelengths, with wavelength separations of similar to 1 nm. The resultant temporal characteristics show a substantial modulation owing to the spectral coupling induced by intracavity-generated four-wave mixing. This result may lead to novel methods for directly generating ultrafast subpicosecond optical pulse sequences with spectrally tailored amplitude and phase characteristics from actively mode-locked semiconductor lasers.
