Detuned loading in coupled cavity semiconductor lasers — effect on quantum noise and dynamics


We derive the modulation and noise properties of a semiconductor laser consisting of an active cavity loaded by a passive cavity. The results indicate that under certain conditions the direct modulation bandwidth can be doubled with simultaneous phase noise reduction as compared to a conventional laser.
