Abstract

The generation mechanism of self-sustained pulsation in vertical cavity surface emitting lasers is analyzed theoretically. The influence of self-focusing, diffraction loss as well as optical feedback is taken into consideration. It is shown that the condition of self-sustained pulsation can be modified significantly by optical feedback. In addition, it is possible to obtain self-sustained pulsation in vertical cavity surface emitting lasers by using external mirror.
