Abstract

A novel procedure for predicting the stability of laser diodes with optical feedback is presented. The method is an extension of the root-locus technique used in control system design. A simple calculation yields the locus of the positions of the dominant s-plane poles of the laser transfer function as the feedback strength and cavity length are varied.
