We have analyzed the short pulse generation using heterodyne techniques. The numerical model for semiconductor lasers under the heterodyne technique is based on the Lang's equation and has been extended in order to take into account the simultaneous injection of the multiple sidebands of the current-modulated laser. The unselected sidebands will affect the optical and RF-spectral characteristics even when the semiconductor laser is locked to the target sidebands.
