Paper Abstract

We analyze the influence of the resonator geometry on the correlation function of the amplitude that express the laser linewidth as well as the coherence of light and of the intensity fluctuations. The stochastic approach based on the solution of the time-dependent Fokker-Planck equation is used. Numerical results are obtained for segment Fabry-Perot and DFB lasers. In the analysis of DFB laser, the complex coupling coefficient as well as the nonvanishing end reflectivities are included.
