Abstract
In the plane wave approximation, we study spatio-temporal dynamics of a semiconductor class B laser driven by a coherent injected field in a Fabry-Perot configuration. Below the lasing threshold, we manage to reduce the dynamics to a single evolution equation for the carrier density, to analytically compute the stationary field configurations and to predict their stability. The numerical simulations, performed by implementing an efficient and accurate split-step code, perfectly agree with the analytical results.
