Abstract
A comparison is made between unpackaged and packaged distributed feedback (DFB) fibre lasers using the Michelson interferometer configuration for delayed self-heterodyne interferometery (MIDSHI) to ascertain the improvements to the external environmental noise, quantified by reductions in the Gaussian linewidth. Voigt fitting is used to extract and separate out the Lorentzian and Gaussian linewidth contributions and therefore the associated sources of noise. Significant improvements in the Gaussian linewidth were achieved as a result of significant reductions in the sensitivity of the DFB laser to external perturbations using packaging. However, a broadening of the laser Lorentzian linewidth was observed.
