Abstract

The authors demonstrate singlemode optical pulses as short as 40 ps, with an average power of similar to 70 mW and a peak power > 0.7 W, from InGaAs/GaAs ridge-waveguide laser diodes under large-signal direct modulation at gigahertz frequencies. The experimental results are in good agreement with rate-equation simulations.
