Oscillation at 110 MHz in a GaAs-GaAlAs quantum-well SEED (self-electrooptic effect device) optical oscillator is considered. Optimization of device length and optical pump wavelength for high-frequency oscillation is discussed. Frequency tuning is obtained by adjusting the oscillator bias voltage or optical pump power, and the oscillator can be injection locked to modulated optical signals. Frequency fluctuations caused by perturbative Gaussian noise and 1/f frequency noise are observed; the 1/f noise in an 8.5-MHz oscillator limited the minimum frequency variance to 230 Hz2
