Paper Abstract

Injection of a cw narrow-band laser beam into a lasing vertical- cavity surface-emitting laser results in the appearance of new frequencies on the way to injection locking as predicted by our theoretical model. Injection also causes a local asymmetric modification of the lasing line, resulting in a new gain peak at a lower frequency and a dip on the high-frequency side. The peak and dip move out directly as the intracavity injected power, as predicted by our quantum mechanical theory.
