Abstract

The turn-on delay jitter of single-mode semiconductor lasers subjected to optical feedback from a phase-conjugate mirror in short external cavities is studied. We develop a theory, validated by numerical simulations, to obtain the turn-on time distribution. It is shown that the turn-on time statistics are highly sensitive to the linewidth enhancement factor.
