Abstract
In optical fiber networks, the semiconductor laser source may be subjected to unavoidable optical feedback from fiber pigtails, fiber connectors and other components, unless expensive optical isolators are used. Therefore, a good understanding of external optical feedback phenomena in semiconductor lasers is required. This paper will review these phenomena, including linewidth narrowing and broadening, mode hopping phenomena and the transition to the so-called coherence-collapse regime. In particular, laser designs with high endurance against optical feedback will be discussed.
