Abstract

A model is presented and used to describe multimode dynamics of laser diode exposed to optical feedback. The model views system as a coupled-cavity problem, and self-consistently calculates the optical susceptibility over the full frequency range of the expected optical cavity modes and include many-body effects. The model is applied to a specific topical phenomenon - the observation of low frequency fluctuation (LFF), and the results are used to assess the importance of multimode effects on LFF dynamics.
