Abstract

We report on the observation of frequency multistability in a semiconductor laser emission. We experimentally study the spectral behavior of a semiconductor laser under a spectrally filtered orthogonal-polarization feedback and show that using a reinjected signal having both absorptive and dispersive lineshapes, we are able to control the laser spectral response exhibiting bistability or multistability. We describe all the observed spectra, considering only the linear response of the laser and both the amplitude and phase filtering of the reinjected orthogonal field.
