The relative intensity noise (RIN) characteristics in distributed feedback (DFB) lasers are analyzed theoretically by proposing a new methodology. In addition to temperature variation (T), the effect of other model parameters such as injection current (Iinj), active layer volume (V), spontaneous emission (βsp) and gain compression (ε) factors on RIN characteristics is investigated. The numerical simulations shows, the peak RIN level can be reduced to around –150 dB/Hz, while relaxation oscillation frequency (ROF) is shifted towards 5.6 GHz. In addition, the RIN level is increased with temperature by the rate of 0.2 dB/ºC and ROF is reduced by the rate of 0.018 GHz/ºC. Results show, the low RIN level can be obtained by selecting model parameters reasonably
