    Numerical simulations of frequency modulated (FM) external cavity semiconductor lasers have been performed and a range of dynamic and spectral phenomena observed. It is shown that FM lasing action can be suppressed due to changes in the FM modulation frequency. Coupled cavity effects are seen to be significant in the development of a broad spectral emission associated with experimentally observed coherence collapse in such a configuration.
