Abstract

We observed modulated oscillations in lasers of up to 130 GHz by conducting frequency domain measurements on photonic crystal lasers with built-in saturable absorbers. This is an example of how the small volumes of photonic crystal lasers lead to increases in the internal modulation frequencies and enables dramatic improvements of the laser modulation rate.
