Abstract

An increase of the relative intensity noise of nearly single-mode distributed feedback lasers with respect to that predicted by single-mode theory after propagation in dispersive fiber at frequencies up to 5 Ghz has been measured. A simplified multimode theory is presented which explains the increase in noise.
