Conclusions
Laser semiconductor laser theory is developed, adopting an approach which is
based on the following basic concepts: applying a spatially-distributed
laser model; applying an experimental formula for laser frequency depending
on the laser amplitude. The derived formula for the laser line form differs
from the Lorentz profile. Effective natural linewidth is defined and its
properties are considered. The exact formula and linear approximation
formula for the effective natural linewidth are derived. Physical
representations of secondary spontaneous fluctuations are formulated.
Formulas for gain for low- and high-power laser are derived and they
demonstrate the main nonlinear effect – dependence of gain upon energy
density. Effective natural linewidth is calculated after solving the
nonlinear system of equations, basing on the generalized Poynting theorem.
Thus, the theory of natural linewidth is an integral part of the nonlinear
theory on the basis of which the output power, linewidth, and threshold
current for Fabry-Perot semiconductor lasers are calculated.
Thecalculations made allow explaining
some experimental measurements of natural linewidth for the Fabry-Perot
semiconductor lasers.
The talk might be of interest to researchers, specialists, postgraduate and
undergraduate students.
