Paper Abstract

A computer simulation based on a travelling-wave, distributed model of the ring laser has been sued to investigate the regimes of operation of passive mode-locked ring semiconductor lasers 2-3mm in circumference. Different configurations of intracavity saturable absorber have been employed and their relative merits determined. Experimental devices with similar configurations have been fabricated, and shown to exhibit mode-locked operation under similar conditions to those predicted by simulation.
