LD11–Influence of Coulomb Scattering on the Coupling between Longitudinal Modes in Nitride Laser Diodes

Kuhn E., Uhlig L., Wachs M., Schwarz U.T., Thränhardt A.

Due to their small separation of longitudinal modes, Fabry-Perot type laser diodes show rich mode competition effects. For example streak camera measurements show cyclic mode hopping, where the currently active longitudinal mode changes from lower to higher wavelengths. This effect can be explained by beating vibrations of the carrier densities in the quantum wells and […]
