Abstract


  • This paper studies the behavior of optical feedback

    self-mixing interferometric (OFSMI) systems, where the semiconductor

    lasers operate at a single mode (perturbed external cavity

    mode) with a large optical feedback factor . Based on analysis of

    the spectral linewidth associated with all the possible lasing modes

    at different values, a set of mode jumping rules are proposed

    following the minimum linewidth mode competition principle proposed

    in [21]. According to the rules, the factor can be classified

    into different regions, on which an OFSMI system will exhibit distinct

    phenomena. In particular, for the same amount of displacement

    associated with the external cavity, the fringe number reduction

    on the OFSMI signal should be observed when increases

    from one region to the next. An experimental setup with a laser

    diode HL7851G was implemented and employed to verify the proposed

    rules. The behavior of the OFSMI predicted by the paper

    has been confirmed by the experiments with value up to 8.0.
