Abstract

We describe an operating regime for passively mode-locked quantum dot diode laser where the output consists of a train of dark pulses, i.e., intensity dips on a continuous background. We show that a dark pulse train is a solution to the master nist-equation for mode-locked lasers. Using simulations, we study stability of the dark pulses and show they are consistent with the experimental results.
