The influence of the optical feedback ratio and bias current on the mean and the standard deviation of the power dropout ratio of low-frequency fluctuations in external-cavity semiconductor lasers has been studied experimentally. The power dropout ratio was found to increase with increasing optical feedback ratio and to decrease with increasing bias current.
