Abstract
Quantum dot nanostructures are one of the best practical examples of emerging nanotechnologies hence offering superior properties as compared to their quantum well counterparts. InAs/GaAs quantum dots allow producing energy- and cost-efficient devices with outstanding temperature stability, lowest threshold current, ultrafast gain dynamics, and low amplified spontaneous emission. This paper reports on the recent achievements in ultrafast and nonlinear dynamics properties of InAs/GaAs quantum dot lasers for radar systems, wireless communications and high-speed optical communications. Passive mode-locking is shown to exhibit a great potential for microwave, millimeter-wave and Terahertz signal generation with high repetition frequency tuning and jitter reduction. The optical feedback is also used to stabilize the pulse emission leading an integrated timing jitter as low as 90 fs without consuming additional power. Lastly, multimode optical feedback dynamics of InAs/GaAs QD lasers emitting on different lasing states is also studied. In particular, a chaos free operation is observed for the first time from the ground state lasing operation.
