Abstract

The single mode Fabry-Perot (FP) semiconductor lasers are investigated systematically by a rigorous time-domain theoretical model based on the transfer matrix method. Static and high-speed dynamic performances under direct modulation and strong external optical feedbacks are simulated for both symmetric and asymmetric longitudinal structures of the lasers. Comparisons with the DFB and conventional FP lasers are made to confirm its effectiveness in achieving single-mode lasing with high spectrum purity under modulation and feedback conditions. Structural optimization is also carried out with respect to the key design parameters.
