Semiclassical Theory of Noise in Semiconductor Lasers-Part I


A Van der Pol analysis of laser noise which includes the field intensity dependence of the refractive index is presented. The consequent amplitude phase coupling affects all laser spectra except the power fluctuations spectrum. An analytic expression for the linewidth broadening enhancement due to index variation is given.
