distributed feedback (DFB) laser

A laser system in which feedback is used to make certain modes in the resonator oscillate more strongly than others. In semiconductor lasers, a periodic corrugation in the active layer replaces the cleaved end mirrors, and the grating spacing is chosen to distribute the feedback in both directions, creating a condition that can approach single-mode oscillation.
