This paper describes a theoretical study of the small-signal modulation behavior of an injection-locked semiconductor laser. Illustrative examples are given, shelling a comparison between the free-running laser and the same laser with light injection. The results show that a substantial reduction of the chirp-to-power ratio (CPR) can be obtained, depending on both the injection level and the frequency detuning between the master and slave lasers. The behavior of the intensity modulation responses is also investigated, with the modulation conditions chosen in the dynamically stable locking range. It appears that the injection-locked laser may present a larger resonance frequency or modulation bandwidth with respect to those of the same laser under free-running operation
