Two-color laser systems based on a semiconductor laser device and spectrally filtered feedback are studied. By use of a broadband numerical simulator and realistic active-structure optical responses, various two-color lasing configurations are investigated. Five characteristic dynamic regimes are observed and classified as semicoherent, coherent, multimode, chaotic, and multimode chaotic. Practical implications for gigahertz or terahertz signal-generation applications are discussed.
