Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We present a multimode laser-linewidth formula that generalizes previous theories, including corrections for cavity losses, nonlinear gain and dispersion, but is derived in a more general setting and is therefore applicable to complex wavelength-scale lasers.
