Abstract

The variation in the optical output of different longitudinal modes of a self-pulsating, multiple-quantum well AlGaInP/GaInP laser diode is examined. The envelope of the pulsations across different longitudinal modes is seen to vary, with the peak gain mode exhibiting a larger first pulse and modes away from the gain peak taking several pulses to reach a steady state pulse amplitude. Theoretical results from a rate-equation model are found to agree closely with spectrally-resolved time-domain measurements.
