The influence of different biasing conditions of a passively mode-locked strongly chirped two-section quantum-dot laser on its ground state (GS) and excited state (ES) emission is investigated both experimentally and theoretically. Numerical simulations performed with a modified time-domain travelling-wave model are in qualitative agreement with experimental results and allow to identify the origin of the experimentally observed mode-locking regimes: the complex time-dependent coupling between the ES and GS absorption bleaching in the saturable absorber section. This coupling, together with the difference in group velocities of ES and GS pulses, is found to be responsible for low-frequency inter-modulation signatures as observed experimentally and verified in the simulations.
