    Integrated semiconductor laser devices are presented as extremely compact generators of ultra-short pulse trains. Control is demonstrated on a wide range of emission parameters including wavelength, pulse duration, repetition rate and emitted power. All device geometries require simple drive electronics, consisting of only constant current injection and reverse bias voltage control.
