An external cw laser signal in injected into a microcavity laser, and the dynamics of the resulting coupled oscillator system are studied. By variation of the injection detuning and intensity, interesting nonlinear behavior and injection locking are experimentally observed. A theoretical model of this system based on coupled rate equations and including many-body gain effects is presented and yields good agreement with experiment.
