- Nonlinear dynamics of a semiconductor laser subjected external optical is applied to all-optical clock division. By properly adjusting the injection conditions, the divide-by-two clock division and the divide-by-three clock division are achieved base on the period-one oscillation. The divide-by-two clock division and divide-by-three clock division can be implemented within different input signal frequency ranges: from 11.0 GHz to 20.0 GHz and from 16.5 GHz to 20.0 GHz, respectively, by adjusting the average power of the injection optical pulses. In addition, our experiment shows that the phase noise of the divided clock signals is below -100 dBc/Hz. The division process can be controlled by the power and the wavelength detuning of the injected optical pulses. A large locking range of 1.0GHz is measured in second clock division, and 1.8GHz is measured in third clock division.
