Abstract

The small-signal modulation response of semiconductor lasers with a very small mirror reflectivity is analyzed. Superluminescent effects inside the laser cavity provide yet another mechanism for damping relaxation oscillation resonance. These results can serve as useful guides in designing high frequency semiconductor lasers.
