  • Stabilization of Broad Area Semiconductor Laser Sources 

    Medina Pardell, Judith; Ahmed, W. W.; Kumar, Shubham; Botey Cumella, Muriel; Herrero Simon, Ramon; Staliunas, Kestutis (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We numerically proof the stabilization of broad area semiconductor laser sources by introducing simultaneous in-phase two-dimensional modulations on the refractive index and on the pump (gain). We also examine the interplay ...
