Abstract

We investigate the dynamical stability of external-cavity semiconductor lasers with deliberate tilt asymmetries. Experimentally observed low-frequency self-pulsations are explained by small-signal analysis based on a new rate-equation model that uses a time-dependent effective reflectivity to include multiple-feedback effects. We observe and explain the dependence of the self-pulsation frequency on the strength and degree of asymmetry of the feedback, on the injection current, and on the external-cavity length. These results are important in interpreting instabilities, chaos, and other complex dynamical phenomena in external-cavity semiconductor lasers.
