Paper Abstract

A linear decrease in the 'second laser threshold' is found when two lasers are optically coupled in the bad cavity limit. The coupled lasers are modeled as on-resonance, single mode, homogeneously broadened lasers. In-phase coupling does not cause lasers operating in the good cavity limit to operate chaotically and may make such lasers more stable. The authors observed that out-of-phase coupling of lasers in the good cavity limit can lead to self-pulsing and limit cycles.
