Abstract

© 2012 IEEE. We report a first experimental study of the simultaneous temporal and polarization-resolved dynamics of a 1550-nm vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) subject to orthogonally polarized optical injection. A novel technique is used to reveal the behavior of both polarizations at the VCSEL's output. In general, the same type of dynamics can be seen in both polarizations of the fundamental transverse mode but with unequal intensity/modulation depth. We show that both polarizations exhibit period one and chaotic dynamics and reveal antiphase dynamics. These results offer promise for the development of dual-channel, anticorrelated periodic and chaotic-signal generators with a single VCSEL for use as oscillators or chaotic sources in present and future optical networks.
