Paper Abstract

Laterally coupled laser diodes are devices in which several lasing stripes are laid side to side, allowing light from one emitter to couple into its neighboring ones. Coupling has been found to cause serious disadvantages such as turning the laser arrays into intrinsically unstable devices. In this paper we show that coupling is also responsible for some unique features that can be used to generate short pulses.
