Volterra functional series expansions for noise in semiconductor lasers

Abstract : In this paper, we present a full analysis of noise in semiconductor lasers. Time-covariance and cross-covariance functions of all variables governing single-mode semiconductor laser behavior are given including all Langevin noise sources and considering all terms of the laser rate equations, RIN, carrier noise spectrum, frequency noise spectrum, coherence between the FM and AM noise, variance of the phase change and coupling between amplitude and phase are investigated analytically in their more general form. Spectral line shape has been derived showing dissymmetrical satellite lines centered at multiple integers of relaxation frequency around a central line. It is shown that neglecting the shot noise and considering only the carrier contribution in phase dynamics (common procedure) are too general approximations
