Paper Abstract

We study the use of multi-section distributed feedback (DFB) lasers with integrated external cavities for the optical generation of millimeter-wave signals. Using a longitudinally-dependent time-domain model, we obtain the spectral characteristics of three basic designs through FFT analysis of the steady-state response. We then compare the stability and tunability of these devices and show the superiority of gain-coupled lasers with integrated active feedback.
