Abstract

The authors demonstrate, experimentally and theoretically, that in a mode-locked two-section quantum-dot laser, the pulse duration decreases with temperature. The primary cause is the increase of carrier capture/escape rates with temperature that leads to faster absorption recovery. (c) 2007 American Institute of Physics.
