Measuring Linewidth Enhancement Factor by Relaxation Oscillation Frequency in a Laser with Optical Feedback

This paper presents a new method for measuring the linewidth enhancement factor (alpha factor) by the relaxation oscillation (RO) frequency of a laser with external optical feedback (EOF). A measurement formula for alpha is derived which shows the alpha can be determined by only using the RO frequen...
