    Abstract

    We report a dual-wavelength passive mode locking regime where picosecond pulses are generated from both ground (lambda = 1263nm) and excited state transitions (lambda = 1180nm), in a GaAs-based monolithic two-section quantum-dot laser. Moreover, these results are reproduced by numerical simulations which provide a better insight on the dual-wavelength mode-locked operation. (C) 2010 Optical Society of America
