Abstract

A novel method for producing high-speed picosecond optical pulses from semiconductor laser diodes that uses incoherent optical feedback is proposed. The incoherent optical feedback provides a successive pulselike modulation in carrier density and drives the system to a self-sustained pulsation state whose repetition rate is determined by relaxation oscillations.
