Abstract

Presented are experimental observations on the occurrence of rare disruptive events in the polarisation-resolved dynamics of 1550nm vertical cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) when subject to orthogonally-polarised optical injection. These events, characterised by high amplitude pulses, appeared individually and simultaneously in the two orthogonal polarisations of the fundamental transverse mode of the device. They could be observed in different regions of dynamic behaviour, including stable injection locking and chaos.
