The light output of a injection laser in a short (several µm) external cavity has been investigated both experimentally and theoretically. The amplitude modulation ratio of the light output signal reaches maximum where the drive current is below the threshold lasing current. An antireflection coated (ARC) laser diode is useful in increasing the light signal.
