Abstract

We found alternate oscillations in AlGaAs/GaAs single-quantum-well quasistadium laser diodes (QSLDs). Unlike the alternate oscillations in conventional ring lasers, which are explained by interaction between two counterpropagating modes, the alternate oscillations in QSLDs arise from two nearly degenerate cavity modes due to its geometric structure. The lasing signals in QSLDs are directly obtained from the emitted beams which spread over the space without the use of waveguides. We also showed that the alternate oscillation frequencies decrease linearly as the amplitudes of the two different cavity modes increase.
