The second- and third-order harmonic distortion in distributed feedback (DFB) lasers is simulated using a time domain large signal dynamic model. The effects of the longitudinal spatial hole burning, nonlinear gain, spontaneous emission, and current leakage are included in the model. Composite second-order (CSO) and composite triple beat (CTB) are calculated for an 80 channel 60-540 MHz system with 3% modulation depth in each channel. The simulation results are compared with the experimental harmonic distortion measurements
