By Junji Ohtsubo

This 3rd variation of “Semiconductor Lasers, balance, Instability and Chaos” used to be considerably prolonged. within the prior version, the dynamics and features of chaos in semiconductor lasers after the creation of the elemental idea of laser chaos and chaotic dynamics precipitated by way of self-optical suggestions and optical injection was once mentioned. Semiconductor lasers with new gadget constructions, similar to vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers and broad-area semiconductor lasers, are fascinating units from the point of view of chaotic dynamics due to the fact that they primarily contain chaotic dynamics even of their free-running oscillations. those issues also are taken care of with recognize to the hot advancements within the present version. additionally the keep an eye on of such instabilities and chaos regulate are serious matters for purposes. one other attention-grabbing and demanding factor of semiconductor laser chaos during this 3rd version is chaos synchronization among lasers and the appliance to optical safe verbal exchange. one of many new issues during this version is quick actual quantity new release utilizing chaotic semiconductor lasers for safe conversation and improvement of chaos chips and their software. As different new vital themes, the new strengthen of latest semiconductor laser buildings is gifted, reminiscent of quantum-dot semiconductor lasers, quantum-cascade semiconductor lasers, vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers and actual random quantity iteration with software to quantum key distribution. Stabilities, instabilities, and regulate of quantum-dot semiconductor lasers and quantum-cascade lasers are very important issues during this field.

Sample text

However, we frequently omitted the term unless necessary since it is usually as small as βsp ∼ 10−5 (Thompson 1980). Furthermore, when we investigate the fundamental dynamics of instability and chaos in nonlinear systems, we can treat only the deterministic terms 40 3 Semiconductor Lasers and Theory without considering statistical noises. Noise is essentially considered as a separate effect from chaotic oscillations in as far as it is small. 50) It should be noted that in this text, the time-dependent harmonic term of the propagating electromagnetic field is defined as exp(−iω0 t).

The structure of semiconductor lasers is based on the p–n junction of the semiconductor materials and the laser oscillation is realized by the emission of light due to carrier recombination between the conduction and valence bands, namely, inter-band optical transitions. The band structure of actual lasers is not modeled by a simple two-level system. Therefore, we cannot straightforwardly apply the results of Chap. 2 and we need some modification of the model and of the strict theoretical treatment.

2 Lorenz–Haken Equations and Laser Thresholds 23 (2) given and almost the same order of the second laser threshold rth has been obtained (Mandel and Zeghlache 1983; Zeghlache and Mandel 1985; Ning and Haken 1990). 1 Classes of Lasers We have taken into consideration all of the time constants for the field, the polarization of matter, and the population inversion in the laser rate equations. The second laser threshold has been calculated for the inclusions of these parameters. However, lasers do not always show instabilities and chaotic behaviors with increased pumping, and most lasers are indeed stable.
