Abstract

The polarization properties of vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) subject to optical feedback are studied experimentally. It is thereby demonstrated that polarization-selective optical feedback can be utilized to entirely eliminate VCSEL polarization switching over the entire device operating range.
