A small-signal analysis for optical FM signal amplification by an injection-locked type semiconductor laser amplifier with consideration of the spurious intensity modulation (SIM) is presented. In general, the performance of optical FM signal amplification by a laser amplifier is affected by the value of the injection power, by the performance of the injecting laser (the master laser), and by the difference between the emission frequencies of the master and slave optical cavities. In particular, when the modulation frequency is very low, the output frequency deviation (FD) of the laser amplifier turns out to coincide with that of the master laser. However, SIM of the laser amplifier in this case is influenced by the injection conditions. A suitable definition, the ratio of the output FD to SIM to the input FD to SIM, is given to evaluate the performance of an injection-locked-type semiconductor laser amplifier
