The modulation response of injection-locked lasers has been carefully analyzed, theoretically and experimentally, with a focus on the strong optical injection regime. We derive closed-form solutions to the relaxation oscillation (resonance) frequency and damping term, as well as the low-frequency damping term, and discuss design rules for maximizing resonance frequency and broadband performance. A phasor model is described in order to better explain the enhancement of the resonance frequency. Experimental curves match closely to theory. Record resonance frequency of 72 GHz and broadband results are shown.
