    Abstract

    The spatial beam characteristics of a standard, low power index-guided semiconductor laser are discussed. The effects of focusing, tilting and aperturing the optical feedback field are evaluated along with modeling using Gaussian beam propagation methods. All of the spatial profiles show that the beam profile is determined by interference of the emitted and optical feedback fields at the output facet of the laser diode.
