Paper Abstract

We developed a Time Domain Traveling Wave model to properly study the dynamics of a hybrid lasers realized by coupling a III-V Reflective Semiconductor Optical Amplifier with a Silicon Photonics mirror providing a narrow effective reflectivity (<10GHz). In free running operation mode, we show that for realistic values of the Henry factor stable single mode emission only occurs around the maximum of the reflectivity slope. Very interestingly for applications, in presence of optical-feedback, we access a regime of ultra-stability with respect to unwanted reflections or to self-oscillations triggered by a photon-photon resonance phenomenon.
