Abstract

Optical phase modulation based on directly modulated reflection-mode optically injection-locked VCSEL is investigated based on standard OIL rate equations and reflection-mode OIL model. The phase information of both static and dynamic state is simulated. The difference of static state phase information between transmission- and reflection-mode OIL is numerically analyzed. With specific OIL parameters, the output power of directly modulated OIL-VCSEL remains constant and phase deviation of 0.934π rad is obtained. Results show that a directly modulated OIL-VCSEL can function as a key component in QPSK or 8PSK transmitters. Preliminary 2.5 Gb/s PSK modulation characteristic is demonstrated experimentally.
