Paper Abstract

We consider a broad area vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser(VCSEL) subject to injection and to time-delayed feedback. We present analytical and numerical analysis of the dependence of the drift instability threshold and on the feedback strength, feedback phase, and carrier relaxation time. we demonstrate that due to finite carrier relaxation rate the delay induced drift instability can be suppressed to a certain extent. We give analytical estimation of the soliton velocity near the drift instability point which is in a good agreement with numerical results obtained using the full model equations.
