Abstract

We report here on the first observation of hysteresis in the asymmetrical tuning curve of a semiconductor laser operating as a resonant-type amplifier. This bistable amplification resulting from a nonlinear resonance phenomenon is caused by the dependence of the refractive index on the injected carrier density.
