Abstract

Theoretical investigations on commanding the bistability and self-pulsation characteristics of two-segment bistable semiconductor laser diode (TBLD) using delayed optoelectronic feedback have been carried out in this paper. The effects of feedback gain and delayed time have been simulated numerically based on the rate equations. The results show that the stable region of TBLD varies periodically with delayed time, the bistable region shrinks with the increase of delayed time, stability can be enhanced for certain values of delayed time, and instability can be reached easily for negative delayed optoelectronic feedback. These conclusions establish the theoretical foundation to optimize and control the TBLD and may have potential applications in bistable switching and self-pulsation generation.
