Abstract

A methodology for treating the semiconductor laser as a current-controlled oscillator in an optical phase-lock loop is presented. The formalism is applied to phase demodulation of optical beams, reduction of phase noise by self-homodyning, and phase locking of a semiconductor laser array.
