LD10–Dynamic properties of two-state lasing quantum dot laser for external optical feedback resistant applications

This work investigates the dynamics of two-state quantum dot lasers through semi-analytically solving a set of rate equations. Simulations reveal that the occurrence of excited state lasing reduces the damping factor of the laser while increases the linewidth enhancement factor associated to the ground state transition. These results are in good agreement with the experimental observation showing that the quantum dot laser becomes more sensitive to external optical feedback at excited state lasing threshold. This work brings novel insights in the understanding of quantum dot laser physics that are useful for designing feedback resistant lasers in photonic integrated technologies.
