Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review


A method for the investigation of the dynamics of two semiconductor lasers, grown side-by-side on the same wafer to enhance the lateral optical coupling, is presented. Using steady state analysis, parameter regimes of relevant dynamics are identified. This is completed by a spectral analysis, were two routes to chaos are implicated. Finally, we confirm the calculations by showing an avoided crossing type of behavior for the coupling strength.
