Abstract

The theory of mutually injected coupled lasers is developed for distributed saturated homogeneous gain so that a set of simultaneous conditions is established for steady-state operation of the coupled-laser system with arbitrary coupling strength. The effects of the various coupled-laser parameters are determined for a model of two Fabry–Perot resonators with distributed saturated homogeneous gain and a longitudinal coupling path.
