Abstract

In this thesis, a modal decomposition method and a time-frequency-domain formalism for the analysis of multimode dynamics of semiconductor ring laser are developed. The diffusion coefficient is suggested as a crucial parameter to take into account. The directional switching dynamics and dependence on the operation parameters has been studied. The lasing wavelength switching accompanied by directional flipping have also been studied. In this framework, a prior selection of the lasing mode is seen as a key factor for the numerical results.
