Based on a set of spatially dependent multimode rate equations derived from Maxwell's equations, a self-consistent analysis of gain-coupled distributed feedback (DFB) lasers is developed. By introducing the modal net gain into the coupled wave equations, we also obtain a closed form formula of the side-mode suppression ratio (SMSR) for DFB lasers. It is shown that, associated with the distributed feedback, the longitudinal spatial hole burning, and the nonlinear gain compression effects, gain coupling produces significant effects on the SMSR of DFB lasers
