Paper Abstract

A theory is developed for an index-guided semiconductor laser array. This theory is based on the expansion of the laser field in terms of the passive array eigenmodes, and on the use of semiclassical laser theory to treat the interaction of these modes among themselves and with the active medium. It is valid for all values of coupling between lasers and for all array sizes. To illustrate the application of this theory, we use it to investigate the lockbands of a two-laser array.
