Paper Abstract

We have developed a theory describing the effect of external optical feedback on the steady-state noise characteristics of a single-mode semiconductor laser. This theory is valid for arbitrarily strong feedback and arbitrary external cavity. The general formalism includes relaxation oscillations, and allow us to analyze the effect of feedback on both the laser linewidth,frequency noise, relative intensity noise and the relaxation oscillation sidebands in the field spectrum.
