Injection of external optical signals into a signal semiconductor laser can induce a variety of modified output characteristics. The different characteristics can be recovered in lumped-circuit oscillator models. Recently, an amplifier model was used to described some novel features in the optical spectra of a vertical cavity surface emitting laser under strong optical injection. This paper shows that the laser cavity plays an important role in the enhancement of the modulation bandwidth and the modification of resonance characteristics.
