Linewidth Enhancement Factor Impact on Optical Feedback Mutual Coupled Quantum Dot Lasers

Rajaa H. Abd Ali, Basim A Ghalib and Ivan B. Karomi


In this article, we numerically study and analyse the roles of linewidth enhancement factor (α) in the dynamic operation of the mutual regime of the transmitter and receiver quantum dot laser lasers supported by optical feedback. A set model of adequate rate equations describing the overall dynamics in a quantum dot system subjected to optical feedback were solved numerically. The results reveal a clear chaotic regime between the receiver and the transmitter lasers at α = 3, which is incredibly advantageous for secure optical communications and encoding decoding data transmission. Moreover, at the other value of linewidth enhancement factors, namely 2, 2.5, 3.5 and 4, the optical regime works in high synchronisation with either periodic or steady state forms.
