A diffraction grating model is developed for use with the transmission-line laser model to enable accurate simulation of grating-controlled mode-locked semiconductor lasers. The trade-off between accuracy and computational effort is examined. Asymmetrical detuning characteristics are investigated using the grating model. The pulsewidth and locking bandwidth are shown to depend on the bandwidth of the optical system, which is determined by the grating.
