Paper Abstract

We report on the combined theoretical and experimental observation of an increase of the small signal modulation response of a Laterally Coupled Diode Laser (LCDL) system beyond its relaxation oscillation frequency. The increase is achieved by means of lateral coupling. Theoretical approaches are presented to explain the experimental observations obtained with these LCDL devices. Our results shed light on the principle of diode laser coupling an open up new perspectives for LCDL for high-speed optical communications.
