Abstract

We present a novel fully monolithic Colliding Pulse Mode-Locked Laser Diode (CPML) using Multimode Interference Reflectors (MMIRs) to create the laser resonator. We demonstrate experimentally for the first time to our knowledge the Colliding Pulse mode-locking of a laser using MMIRs by observation of the Optical Spectrum and by measuring the frequency spacing between the modes. This component is a promising candidate for Stable Millimeter-Wave Generation in ultra-wideband wireless communication links. Multimode Interference Reflectors are very versatile components that allow avoiding the required cleaved facets to operate.
