Abstract

We theoretically investigate a system of two mutually delay-coupled semiconductor lasers, in a face to face configuration for integration in a photonic integrated circuit. This system is described by single-mode rate equations, which are a system of delay differential equations with one fixed delay. Several bifurcation scenarios involving multistabilities are presented, followed by a comprehensive frequency analysis of the symmetric and symmetry-broken, one-color and two-color states.
