Paper Abstract

Low Frequency Fluctuations (LFF) in diode lasers with optical feedback from an external reflector have been experimentally investigated by determining the control parameter region for their occurrence and by measuring statistical distributions of the return times between fluctuations. Two LFF regimes with different return time statistics have been identified. As asymmetry in the temporal dependence of the output intensity from the front and rear facets of the diode has been detected and explained in terms of coherent properties of the optical field.
