Paper Abstract

In the self-mixing super luminescent diode (SM-SLD)1 technique the monitor photodiode is exploited to detect the interference signal. The major advantage of this techniques is that the interference signal is optically amplified by the high-gain active medium making its detection more simple and enhancing SNR. The major drawback is the amplification of the interference satellite subpeaks which degrade LCI perfonnance.
