Abstract

It is shown that parametric mixing through χ(3) of two injected laser lines can provide index modulation sufficient for the mode locking of the semiconductor laser. Numerical estimates indicate that picosecond pulses with 100-GHz repetition rates should be possible with a few watts of external laser power.
