Abstract

Linewidth narrowing of the radio frequency beat-tones and the optical-modes is experimentally investigated in a 40GHz quantum-dash mode-locked laser diode subject to optical injection of 10GHz pulses. In comparison to the 75kHz linewidth exhibited by the beat-tones in passive mode-locking conditions, a remarkable reduction to less than 8Hz is achieved when the laser is under optical injection. From this beat-tone signal, an integrated root-mean-square timing jitter of 64fs is calculated. In addition, a quadratic profile of the optical linewidth with the wavelength is observed in active locking, reaching a minimum of 1.7MHz for the longitudinal modes around 1530nm and progressively increasing to 37.4MHz for modes at 1525nm.

(a) Beat-tones, (b) optical spectrum and (c) linewidth of selected modes for the QDash MLLD in free-running (red trace) and under the injection of optical pulses (blue trace). Bias current in the QDash laser is set at 100 mA . Insets in (a) and (c) illustrate the beat-tones under optical injection recorded with a 10 Hz resolution and the signal at the output of the SHD while the laser is in free-running, respectively.
