Paper Abstract

The Self-Mixing Interference (SMI) effect of a Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser (VCSEL) is studied in this paper. The analysis and experiment are presented to verify the dynamics of the VCSEL. The phenomenon is observed and contrasted with traditional interference phenomenon. The output property of VCSEL is modulated by the change of cavity length and feedback intensity. An interferometer using VCSEL self-mixing based on temporal carrier phase shifting technique is studied. Theoretical analysis and simulation calculations are presented and some errors of this method are discussed.
