A rate-equation theory is derived for the coupling of two Fabry-Pérot cavity lasers. The effective coupling coefficients depend on the respective inversions in each individual laser, where the latter are modified by the coupling. Stable single-mode operation is demonstrated and locking ranges are calculated for lasers coupled via self-imaging in a multi-mode interference anti-phase reflector. The shapes of output-intensity curves agree well with measured curves.
