Abstract

We show that a two-dimensional periodic modulation of the pump profile (modulation both along and perpendicular to the optical axis) can suppress the modulation instability in broad emission area semiconductor amplifiers. In the case of a realistic finite-width amplifier the modulation instability can be completely eliminated.
