Abstract:An extension of the spin-flip model was developed to analyze the polarization switching in vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSEL). The linearly-polarized states of a VCSEL were associated with a phase-locked state of the two circularly polarized components of the optical field. Polarization switching occurred in association with the exchange of stability of the phase-locked states through amplitude-phase coupling, which can be obtained by either increasing the injection current at constant detuning or by scanning the detuning while keeping the injection current fixed.
