Paper Abstract

We extend previous analyses of a recently developed model describing polarization switching in VCSELs. We report on elliptically polarized states and their stability, as well as on the effect of small amplitude anisotropies on polarization state selection caused by birefringence and saturable dispersion. We also study polarization switching by optical injection.
