Abstract

We present experimental results showing a departure from the usually assumed Gaussian statistics of the fluctuations of the instantaneous emission frequency in single-mode semiconductor lasers operating under the influence of an external optical feedback. The amount of this departure is studied and analyzed under various operating conditions.
