For passive dispersive reflector (PDR) lasers we investigate a single mode model containing two functions characterizing the influence of the PDR. We study numerically the effect of the shape of these functions on the existence and robustness of self-pulsations. The possibility of tuning the frequency and modulation depth of the self-pulsations has been demonstrated.
