Spatial Hole Burning in Actively Mode-Locked Quantum Cascade Lasers
A theoretical study of active mode-locking in quantum cascade lasers including spatial hole-burning is presented. It is found that spatial hole-burning reduces the pulse duration at the expense of slight pulse instability and strongly structured pulse shapes.
