Paper Abstract

We find three types of complex polarization dynamics arising in VCSELs with polarized optical feedback when axes of the intrinsic and external anisotropies are aligned. Their appearance depends on the interplay between these anisotropies which determines the stability of modes polarized along the polarizer axis with respect to perturbations with the same and orthogonal polarization. The influence on the laser behavior of a rotation of the external polarizer is considered.
