Paper Abstract

The results of studying the steady states for bright ultrashort optical pulses, developing in single-mode semiconductor amplifiers structured in a direction of passing those pulses, are presented. These steady states occur due to reshaping the incoming optical pulses via the passive mode-locking process in traveling-wave regime. The relations between the pulse parameters and the amplifier's properties are chosen in such a way that the mode-locking process is incoherent in behavior that leads to the phase decay of the incoming pulses. The analysis performed demonstrates the effect of the gain non-locality manifests itself in asymmetry of the issuing bright optical pulses with various shapes of envelopes.
