abstract

A semiconductor laser coupled to a gallium-made non linear mirror may exhibit pulse regime. In order to better understand this coupled cavity, stationary solutions and dynamics are described following the standard Lang and Kobayashi equations for a semiconductor laser submitted to nonlinear optical feedback. It is shown that the nonlinearity distorts the ellipse on which lied the stationary solutions, with a ``higher'' part corresponding to lower reflectivity and a ``lower'' part to higher reflectivity. Bifurcation diagrams and nonlinear analysis are presented while the conditions for pulsed operation are discussed.
