Abstract

Photonic crystal Fano lasers have recently been realised experimentally, showing useful properties such as pinned single-mode lasing and passive pulse generation. Here the fundamental properties of the modes of the Fano laser are analysed, showing how the laser functionality depends sensitively on the system configuration. Furthermore the laser stability is investigated and linked to the small-signal response, which shows additional dynamics that cannot be explained with a conventional rate equation model, including a damping of relaxation oscillations and a frequency modulation bandwidth that is only limited by the nanocavity response.
