Paper Abstract

A novel Q-modulation scheme for high-speed modulation of semiconductor laser is presented. The modulator consists of an anti-resonant Fabry-Perot cavity acting as a rear reflector of the laser. The change of the absorption coefficient in the modulator results in a change in the Q-factor of the laser, and consequently the lasing threshold and output power. Static and small-signal dynamic simulation results are presented, demonstrating its operating principle and distinct characteristics. The monolithically integrated Q-modulated laser (QML) has potential advantages of high speed, high extinction ratio, low wavelength chirp and high power efficiency.
