AbstractWe have designed, grown and fabricated InAs/InP quantum dot (QD) waveguides as the gain materials of mode-locked lasers (MLLs). Passive InAs/InP QD MLLs based on single-section Fabry–Perot (F–P) cavities with repetition rates from 10 GHz to 100 GHz have been demonstrated in the C- and L-band. Femtosecond (fs) pulses with pulse duration of 295 fs have been achieved. The average output power is up to 50 mW at the room temperature of 18 °C. By using the external fiber mixed cavities fs pulse train with a repetition rate of 437 GHz has been generated. We have also discussed the working principles of the developed QD MLLs.
