Abstract

The nonlinearity difference in the two passbands of a distributed-feedback semiconductor laser amplifier was studied experimentally. A theoretical explanation was given by using the transmission matrix approach. The difference of nonlinearity in the two passbands was found to be enhanced greatly by the mechanism of asymmetric facet reflection.
