Paper Abstract

We address the behavior of a Y-laser junction, in which the fundamental modes generated by a twin-stripe semiconductor laser are guided for mixing. When the mode-locked laser emission of the pulses in-phase is launched in the waveguide, coherent combination of the modes in the junction is possible. Fast laser oscillations allow for a reduction in the waveguide angle, which serves to diminish transmission losses produced by bending. Shorter separation distances between stripes and reduced branch lengths also optimize the operation of the device.
