The intensity noise and turn-on delay jitter of laser diodes with optical feedback from a phase-conjugate mirror are investigated numerically. Low levels of phase-conjugate optical feedback cause a small intensity noise reduction in semiconductor lasers. The behavior of the intensity noise for increased phase-conjugate feedback is shown to be different than that for increased conventional-mirror feedback.
