CWL in INTERCONNECT

      I have a question about CWL (continuous wave laser), which is defined in INTERCONNECT.

      As far as checking the property view of CWL, it looks like that a single longitudinal mode laser, such as DFB laser, can be defined. Is it possible to define a multi longitudinal mode laser like a Fabry-Perot laser?

      Hit The CWL element creates a constant optical signal at a single frequency, with some optional noise. To create a source with signals at multiple frequencies you could add multiple CWL sources and combine their outputs. If you have a physical laser model in mind you could consider using the TWLM element, though this model requires a lot more information about the laser.

      Thank you very much. I understood it.
