Paper Abstract

We numerically investigate the effect of phase-amplitude coupling modulation on power spectra in semiconductor lasers subject to optical injection in a face to face configuration, when a non-negligible injection delay time is taken into account. We find that as phase-amplitude coupling factor α varies, the system goes through a sequence of phase transactions between In-phase locking states to anti-phase locking states via phase-flip bifurcation. Moreover, we observed the signature of frequency discretization (Frequency Island) and uncovered the physical mechanism for the existence of multi-stability near the phase transitions regimes. Within the windows between successive anti-phases to in-phase locking regions, optical injection induced modulation in alpha, unveiling a remarkable universal feature in the various dynamics of coupled lasers system which could be useful in controlling the chirp or pulse repetition rate of a photonic integrated compact device with the aid of phase control.
