11 In multi-section Distributed Bragg Reflector (DBR) lasers, the absorption in the unpumped passive sections may prevent lasing. Simple theories predict that forward biasing leading to carrier injection in the passive sections can reduce the absorption. Many-Body Effects on DBR Lasers: the feedback is distributed over several layers

12 Forward biasing is not a solution! A. Klehr, G. Erbert, J. Sebastian, H. Wenzel, G. Traenkle, and M.F. Pereira Jr., Appl. Phys. Lett.,76, 2653 (2000). On the contrary, the absorption increases over a certain range due to Many Particle Effects!! Many-Body Effects on DBR Lasers
