Optical injection locking of polarization modes and spatial modes in single-aperture VCSELs and VCSEL arrays emitting at 1.3 mu m
We report the injection locking of specific spatial modes and polarization modes of 1.3 mu m wavelength vertical surface emitting lasers (VCSELs) in single-aperture devices and phase-coupled arrays. The optical injection is realized using a master laser (ML) VCSEL, the beam of which is directed onto the output facet of the slave laser (SL) VCSEL or VCSEL array. We measured the emission spectra of the SL as the ML operating conditions (frequency, power) were varied systematically, and present the results on two-dimensional stability maps of power versus detuning of the ML from the injected modes.
