Paper Abstract

Semiconductor lasers with axially non-uniform structures are known to exhibit bistable charactreristics which can be switched by the application either of electrical or optical pulses. The paper describes the physical mechanism of the appearance of bistable characteristics in InGaAsP/InP DH lasers and gives accounts why this laser tends to bistable operation in comparison with GaAs lasers. Temperature dependence and control of hysteresis width by non-uniform pumping are also discussed.
