    Abstract

    A detailed theoretical and numerical investigation of the dynamics of photonic crystal Fano lasers is presented. It is shown how the dynamical model supports self-pulsing, as was recently observed experimentally, and an in-depth analysis of the physics of the self-pulsing mechanism is given. Furthermore, it is demonstrated how different dynamical regimes exist, and these are mapped out numerically, showing how self-pulsing or continuous-wave output may be controlled through the strength of the pump and the detuning of the nanocavity. Finally, laser phase transitions through dynamical perturbations are demonstrated.
