Stabilization of Broad Area Semiconductor Laser sources by simultaneous index and pump modulations.

We show that the emission of broad area semiconductor amplifiers and lasers can be efficiently stabilized by introducing, two-dimensional periodic modulations simultaneously on both the refractive index and the pump (gain-loss) profiles, in the transverse and longitudinal directions. The interplay between such index and gain-loss modulations efficiently suppresses the pattern forming instabilities, leading to highly stable and bright narrow output beams from such sources. We also determine the stabilization performance of the device as a function of pump current and linewidth enhancement factor.
