Abstract

It has been shown that strong optical injection locking can significantly enhance the resonance frequency of semiconductor lasers. In this Letter, we describe the trade-off between the maximum resonance frequency enhancement and the quality factor (Q) of the lossless laser cavity and show that the time–bandwidth product (product of photon lifetime and maximum resonance frequency) is equal to one half the square root of the external power injection ratio. The theoretical model agrees well with our experimental data.
