Abstract
The possible operating modes of a distributed-feedback side-coupled laser are discussed. A modal analysis of thin-film distributed-feedback lasers is presented and used to elucidate the mode of operation of the side- coupled laser. Experimental observations made to determine the nature of the laser output are shown to support the hypothesis that laser action is preferentially obtained in modes belonging to a high-order bound-mode group of the structure.
