Paper Abstract

The stable two-mode operation of a 4-sections semiconductor laser emitting at 1.55 μm is experimentally demonstrated and analysed. An interpretation of the two-mode regime involving a saturable absorber is theoretically developed and the characteristic parameters of this saturable absorber deduced. This work exhibits the possibility of terahertz wave generation by photomixing using this device.
