Paper Abstract

In this work, we studied the effect of structural chirping on optical bistability in (lambda) /4-shifted semiconductor distributed-feedback, (DFB) devices, such as an etalon with nonlinear mirrors, a (lambda) /4-shifted DFB waveguide, and a (lambda) /4-shifted DFB laser amplifier. We found that chirped DFB devices exhibit bistable switching at a lower input power.
