We have investigated the spectral characteristics of the semiconductor lasers locked to the sidebands of the master laser in this paper, which were expressed by a series of the Bessel function. The numerical model for the semiconductor lasers based on the typical Lang's equation has been extended in order to take into account the simultaneous injection of the multiple sidebands of the directly modulated ML. We analyses characteristics of direct intensity modulation.
