We investigate self-seeded optical sources for interferometric sensing applications and show that they can, depending on optical filter bandwidth, provide high-output power, high wavelength temperature stability (<5 ppm/°C), low relative intensity noise (<-140 dBc/Hz) and low coherence lengths (<100 um). We characterize the key performance indicators for a range of optical filter bandwidths and provide insight into key design parameters of such sources for interferometric sensors.
