We present an asymptotic analysis of the equations describing a semi-conductor laser with optical injection. This analysis focuses on the phase drift regime where the slave laser is not locked to the injected signal. In addition to the basic four wave mixing solution, we find subharmonic bifurcations and coexisting isolated periodic solutions (dynamic isolas), which occur close to integer detunings. We also present experimental data that confirm some of these predictions.
