Abstract

Mode switching in critically strained and other tailored VCSEL based photonic lattices is demonstrated by means of injection locking. For strained lattices, switching between four-lobed and six-lobed far field modes is examined and it is shown that near the critical strain, relatively low injection power is needed to switch between these modes. For lattices tailored to have their modes localized, switching between localized modes is examined. Both the critically strained and the tailored lattices may be used in an all optical switching device.
