Abstract

We have experimentally investigated the performance of external cavity mode-locked semiconductor lasers employing reverse biased saturable absorbers. We have measured the magnitude of trailing pulses when varying the chip length and studied the pulse quality when changing the driving conditions. The observed behavior is explained and we conclude on the optimum operating parameters.
