Abstract

Semiconductor lasers subject to delayed optical feedback from external reflectors and operating close to threshold exhibit complex output oscillations characterized by sudden intensity drops or low frequency fluctuations (LFF), described as a dynamic regime consisting of many unstable external cavity modes (ECM). But LFF may already appear for a low number of ECMs. The bifurcation connection between ECMs and LFFs is analyzed in a semiconductor laser.
