The insensitivity to optical feedback is experimentally measured for a semiconductor ring laser (SRL) and compared to that of a Fabry–Perot laser (FPL) fabricated with the same technology and on the same material. An analysis of the optical spectra reveals that the SRL remains nearly unaffected for values of optical feedback as strong as −23 dB. Furthermore, through both optical linewidth and self-mixing measurements, we show that the tolerance to feedback in SRLs is 25–30 dB stronger than in FPLs. This property makes SRLs very interesting candidates for the development of feedback-insensitive optical sources.
