We report terminal electrical noise measurements on 1.55-μm DBR tunable laser diodes in the 1 Hz-1 MHz frequency range, performed using an electrical correlation method. These measurements are compared with a comprehensive electrical model based on rate equation formalism. Taking into account diffusion phenomenon and structural parameters, we obtain a complete agreement between the model and the measurements above threshold and a quite similar tendency below threshold. The influence of Bragg section bias is also discussed.
