Paper Abstract

Comprehensive electro-opto and thermal analysis on GaSb-based vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) emitting at 2.6μm are presented. The theoretical models include a 2D/3D drift-diffusion equations for carrier transport coupled with the optical model which describes the spontaneous noise as the driving force for lasing. Optical gain is obtained by Fermi’s golden rule and the self-consistent solution of Schrodinger equation. Self- heating effects of the device are also included self-consistently. These results shed light on the internal device physics such as carrier transport, temperature ditribution, optical gain and losses etc. Based on the simulation, we also discuss the areas for future improvements.
