Instability of linearly polarized lasing modes of a single-mode VCSEL

  • 30 Accesses

  • 3 Citations


Conditions of stability of linearly polarized lasing modes are analyzed within the framework of the spin-flip theory of VCSELs over a wide range of parameters in relation to the linear dichroism and linear birefringence introduced into the system by an optically anisotropic semiconductor crystal.
