Abstract

An analysis is presented, based on a rigorous solution of the propagation equations, of an array of saturable fiber amplifiers with scatter in length that is subject to global feedback. Passively phase-locked states exhibiting multistability due to resonant or Kerr nonlinearity are predicted in respectively low and high regimes of optical feedback.
