A theoretical model for the generation of non-equidistant pulses in passively mode-locked VECSELs — •Jan Hausen1, Stefan Meinecke1, Benjamin Lingnau1,2, and Kathy Lüdge11Institute for theoretical Physics, TU Berlin, Hardenbergstrasse 36, 10623 Berlin — 2Physics Department, University College Cork, College Rd, Cork, Irland

Embedding the active sections of a passively mode-locked laser, i.e. gain and absorber medium, in an external cavity with a V-shaped geometry can greatly enhance their performance in terms of pulse width and power. However, multi-pulse solutions with non-equidistant inter-pulse spacing (pulse clusters) emerge in these devices and limit their performance. We derive a system of multi-delay differential equations, which is simple enough to allow for large numeric parameter studies as well as a bifurcation analysis to understand the underlying bifurcation scenarios. We find that by tuning the cavity geometry different mode-locking behaviour can be favoured e.g. fundamental, higher harmonic or pulse cluster mode-locking. Furthermore, our investigations show that by increasing the cavity geometry stable regions of higher order pulse clusters develop from cusps of saddle-node bifurcation and stabilizing torus bifurcations.
