Spectrally resolved streak camera measurements of picosecond pulses emitted by hybridly colliding pulse mode-locked (CPM) laser diodes are presented in this letter. Depending on the modulation frequency both blue-chirped (upchirped) and red-chirped (downchirped) pulses can be observed. The two different regimes and the transition between them are characterized experimentally and the behavior is explained on the basis of our model for the CPM laser dynamics.
