Paper Abstract

A review is made on the current status of the study of the self-coupling effects in the semiconductor laser diode and on the application of the effects in optical memory readout. It is proposed and demonstrated that the operational instsabilities caused excess coherency of the laser output light is suppressed by placing either a polarzation rotator or a phase plate in the path of the light.
