Abstract
In this paper, a numerical model is presented to simulation the performance of the wavelength-beam-combined laser diode arrays (LDA) system. The eigen mode expansion method is used to describe the two-dimensional optical amplification and the strength of field feedback of external cavity. To describe the mode competition in laser diodes, the gain saturation effect is considered. The two-dimension distributions of the carrier concentration, recombination rates, and optical gain are calculated for solving the laser dynamic equation. The Fresnel integration, grating equation and mode overlap integration are used to obtain the feedback coefficient of extent cavity diffraction. Quantum noise is considered to evaluate the spectral linewidth of semiconductor laser. Based on the numerical model, the impact of the mutual optical feedback on the beam quality and spectrum of the LDA is present and analysis.
