LD02–A Functional Mapping for Passively Mode-Locked Semiconductor Lasers

We present a modern approach for the analysis of passively mode-locked semiconductor lasers that allows for efficient parameter sweeps and time jitter analysis. It permits accessing the ultra-low repetition rate regime where pulses become localized states. The analysis including slow (e.g. thermal) processes or transverse, diffractive dynamics becomes feasible. Our method bridges the divide between the phenomenological, yet highly efficient, pulse iterative model that is the Haus master equation, and the more involved first principle descriptions relying on time delayed equations. Reductions of the simulation times and of the memory footprint up to two orders of magnitudes are demonstrated.
