Paper Abstract

We investigate the evolution of short-duration pulses injected into laser diodes biased above threshold with the use of spectrally and temporally resolved experimental and numerical methods. We show that stable transients may be formed as a result of spatially re-distributing the cavity energy. By controlling the phase of injected pulses with respect to the diode cavity radiation we show through simulation that it is possible to directly generate and control stable streams of pulses.
