Paper Abstract

The analysis of sculpturing picosecond optical pulses by single-mode semiconductor laser structures, multilayered in a direction of passing those pulses, is developed with the calculation of phase effects. Pulses are reshaped due to the passive mode-locking process in traveling-wave regime. The relations between the pulse parameters and structure properties are chosen in such a way that the process is incoherent in behavior and provides the phase decay of incoming pulses. Reaching the steady state in pulse parameters is described in terms ofdiffusive instability and then is investigated from the viewpoint of nonlinear optical transmission. Dynamics of sculpturing is illustrated via computer simulation. Possible application lies in implementing an all-optical lumped regeneration ofpicosecond bit pulses in fiber links.
