Continuous Wave Frequency Modulated Optical Feedback (CWFM-OF): Theory and Applications

Jha, Ajit

Abstract (englisch):
Paradoxically optical feedback (OF) (the phenomenon in which a fraction of the optical field emitted by a laser is fed back into its cavity), that was once considered an undesired phenomenon in the context of optical fibre communications because it introduces instabilities in the laser, has proven to be extremely useful in different real world photonic sensing applications. The optical feedback affects the internal parameters of the laser, such as the facet reflection coefficient, the laser gain, the photon and carrier density, and ultimately the emitted intensity from the laser. This direct relationship among the OF, intensity and frequency modulation is appealing because it transfigures the laser into a complete interferometric set-up where the laser itself acts as source, detector and interfering media all in one, suited for non-contact, non-destructive photonic sensing. The study in this Thesis contributes to different areas of optical feedback interferometry (OFI): from the theoretical formalization of understanding the transfer function of the laser under OF based on scattering theory, to signal processing of the optical feedb ... mehr
