Paper Abstract

We analyze the dynamics of a mode-locked quantum-dot edge-emitting semiconductor laser consisting of reversely biased saturable absorber and forward biased amplifying sections. To describe spatial non-uniformity of laser parameters, optical fields and carrier distributions we use the traveling wave model, which takes into account carrier exchange processes between wetting layer and quantum dots. A comprehensive parameter study and an optical mode analysis of operation regimes are presented.
