Paper Abstract

In this paper we report the observation of low-frequency phenomena in the behavior of a stochastic system governed by a pair of coupled ordinary differential equations, which models a directly modulated laser diode. The appearance of these fluctuations, which resembles an intermittent-like behavior, is very similar to those that have been observed in an external cavity laser diode where extensive work has been carried out recently to explain their origin. Here we show that these bursts are observed in both, the stochastic and the deterministic model of the solitary laser dynamics.
