Abstract

We demonstrate that the phase and amplitude of the reflection coefficient for Bloch waves can be useful tools in understanding and predicting the spectral characteristics of distributed-feedback lasers. We further apply the Bloch wave formalism for engineering the asymmetry of the spectral response with respect to the gap through a judicious termination of the laser facets.
