Paper Abstract

We study the dynamics of coupled arrays of Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) under optical injection of light into on of the VCSEL in the array In spite of a theoretical expectation for slow light propagation exhibiting resonance tunneling of the injected pulse to its adjacent lasers we observed the opposite effect - the light was first observed in the VCSEL furthest away from the injection point. These rather surprising results are presented and several possible explanations are discussed.
