Abstract

Pulse trains with a 42GHz repetition rate were generated by monolithic InGaAs/AlGaAs double quantum well lasers at a wavelength of 985 [angstroms]. The cavity was electrically divided into three regions, one providing gain and the other two providing saturable absorption. The optical modulation has a depth greater than 98% and full-width at half-maximum under 6ps, and bias conditions for sustained mode-locking are determined.
