Abstract

It is shown that, to calculate the spectral linewidth reduction of an external-cavity semiconductor laser with strong external feedback, the complex laser field equation and the general linewidth-reduction equations must be modified to avoid inconsistenties. The resulting set of consistent equations and the consequent consistent linewidth reductions are discussed.
