### Abstract

We study the dynamics of two vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) mutually coupled such that the natural lasing polarization of each laser is rotated by 90 degrees and then is injected into the other laser. Simulations based on the spin-flip model show transient square-wave polarization switchings before a stationary state is reached. The influence of various model parameters on the duration of the stochastic transient time and on the lasers’ dynamics in the stationary state is investigated.

*μ*≃ 2, the

*x*polarization is stable if the birefringence is large enough (

*γ*≥ 50 rad/ns), while the

*y*while in Figs. 2(c), (d) the coupling is

*y*→

*x*. One can notice that in both cases, for strong coupling the pure mode is dominant, while for low coupling, the mixed state dominates. Analytically we find that, depending on the coupling strength, there are either one or three pure mode solutions. The stability analysis of these solutions can not be done analytically but numerically we find that the middle and lower solutions are unstable, while the upper solution is stable as soon as it exists [as in Fig. 2(b)] or becomes stable after a series of bifurcations [as in Fig. 2(c)].

*x*-polarization in red and the intensity of the

*y*-polarization in blue; the intensities were averaged to simulate the finite experimental detection bandwidth). During the transient there are square-wave polarization switchings, and it can be noticed that the lasers emit the same polarization and switch simultaneously to the orthogonal one. The sum of two consecutive switching intervals is slightly larger than 2

*τ*. This dynamical switching is metastable and eventually evolves as shown in the right panels: the intervals that one laser emits one polarization grow, while the intervals that emits the orthogonal one decrease, until a steady-state is reached where the lasers emit polarization-orthogonal cw outputs. In this “pure-mode” one laser emits its natural polarization and acts as a “master laser” injecting polarization-rotated cw light into the other laser (referred to as “injected laser”). The injection is strong enough to turn off the natural polarization of the injected laser and turn on the orthogonal one. Since the lasers are coupled via their natural polarizations, the “master laser” does not receive light from the “injected laser” and therefore, their coupling is in fact unidirectional.

- Both lasers emit the two polarizations with cw intensities (“mix-mode solution”).
- There are irregular, chaotic-like oscillations in the two polarizations in the two lasers.
- The lasers emit orthogonal polarizations: the master laser emits a cw output at the natural polarization while the injected laser displays sustained oscillations at the laser relaxation frequency after a Hopf bifurcation. This occurs, for example, in the region of coupling strengths 20 ns
^{−1}≤*η*≤ 80 ns^{−1}in the bifurcation diagrams presented in Figs. 2(c), (d), where the intensity of the master laser is constant in time, Fig. 2(d), while the intensity of the injected laser is time-dependent, Fig. 2(c). Typical time-traces of the intensities of the two lasers are presented in the right panels of Fig. 4. The injected laser can display the rich variety of dynamical behaviors that are typical of orthogonal optical injection (see, e.g., Ref. [21, 2221. A. Hurtado, I. D. Henning, and M. J. Adams, “Different forms of wavelength polarization switching and bistability in a 1.55 m vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser under orthogonally polarized optical injection,” Opt. Lett.

**34**365 (2009). [CrossRef] [PubMed]] and references therein), with the frequency difference between the two polarizations playing a role similar to that of the detuning between the injected and master lasers. It is worth noting that when the injection is22. M. S. Torre, A. Hurtado, A. Quirce, A. Valle, L. Pesquera, and M. J.

*x*polarization of the solitary laser loses stability (see the green region in Fig. 1) and the dominant

*x*polarization acquires a small component in the orthogonal

*y*polarization. For even larger pump current the intensities

*I*and

_{x}*I*of the solitary laser both display regular oscillations. In this situation, when the lasers are mutually coupled, the “master” laser exhibits oscillations in both polarizations (the “solitary laser” solution) while the “injected” laser emits only the

_{y}*y*polarization and shows the same oscillations as the master laser, as shown in the left panels of Fig. 4.

*μ*s (i.e., this is the longest transient time that we could compute). We limited the study to parameter regions where, for the solitary lasers, only one polarization is stable (regions red and blue in Fig. 1). We found that the transient time is a stochastic quantity that can display large deviations from its mean value. As shown in Fig. 5(a), the average duration of the transient time is not affected by the noise strength, if this is not too strong. The injection current parameter also does not seem to significantly affect the duration of the transient, Fig. 5(b). The average transient increases with the delay time, Fig. 6(a), and with the coupling strength, Fig. 6(b). The linear anisotropy parameter,

*γ*, and the spin-flip rate,

_{a}*γ*, do not significantly affect the duration of the transient, as shown in Figs. 7 (a), (b).

*x*→

*y*there are three distinct regions: for

*γ*≤ 55 rad/ns (but larger than ≈50 rad/ns, such that for the solitary lasers only the

_{p}*x*polarization is stable), the duration of the transient decreases with

*γ*. For intermediate values of

_{p}*γ*(55 rad/ns ≤

_{p}*γ*≤ 65 rad/ns) the “pure-mode” solution is stable and the transient time decreases abruptly. For larger
