ABSTRACT
A new experimental method to study modal interaction in semiconductor lasers is presented. The inter-intramode correlation spectroscopy investigates correlations between intensity and phase fluctuations having their origin in different longitudinal modes. First results for GaAs/(GaAl)As multimode lasers reveal correlated frequency fluctuations of the total longitudinal mode comb. Refractive index fluctuations and intermode coupling are discussed as the origin for these intramodal fluctuations.
