AbstractNon-equilibrium multi-wavelength operation of vertical external-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VECSELs) is investigated numerically using a coupled system of Maxwell semiconductor Bloch equations. The propagation of the electromagnetic field is modeled using Maxwell's equations, and the semiconductor Bloch equations simulate the optically active quantum wells. Microscopic many-body carrier-carrier and carrier-phonon scattering are treated at the level of second Born-Markov approximation, polarization dephasing with a characteristic rate, and carrier screening with the static Lindhard formula. At first, an initialization scheme is constructed to study multi-wavelength operation in a time-resolved VECSEL. Intracavity dual-wavelength THz stabilization is examined using longitudinal modes and an intracavity etalon. In the latter, anti-correlated noise is observed for THz generation and investigated.
