Paper Abstract

The theory of feedback into a diode laser by an externally located reflector is developed for the case of arbitrary feedback strength. Assuming typical values for laser diode parameters, it is predicted that by employing a nearby (13.5mm) external partially transmitting mirror, line narrowing by a factor of at least 2000 is possible without increasing the threshold gain of the laser, while maintaining dynamical stability of the output and flattening the modulation transfer function up to about 8 GHz.
