Recent developments in two areas of high speed semiconductor lasers will be addressed: (1) passive mode-locking of a segmented-contact semiconductor laser with a reliable, controllable saturable absorber which produces stable picosecond optical pulses, and (2) realization of very high frequency (X-band) direct analog modulation of a semiconductor laser diode.
