Abstract
Self-pulsating semiconductor lasers are deviced to reduce optical feedback noises as light sources in optical data storage systems. However, they themselves include instabilities in their solitary oscillations without any optical feedback and they also show unstable behaviors induced by optical feedback. We experimentally investigate instabilities and dynamics of self-pulsating semiconductor lasers without and with optical feedback from a distant reflector on the order of several tens of centimeters to one meter.
