Polarization Correlations in Pulsed VCSELs



D. R. Shelly, T. W. Garrison, M. Beck, David H. Christensen


We have measured the correlations between the two orthogonal linearly polarized outputs of a pulsed vertical-cavity, surface-emitting laser and found them to be dependent on the number of lasing modes.
