Abstract

The anomalous enhancement of fluctuations during gain switching of semiconductor lasers is considered. An extension of the quasi-deterministic theory is performed to account for the nonlinear dynamics of the process. The results are in quantitative agreement with those of a computer simulation of the Langevin rate equations describing the process.
