Paper Abstract

A comprehensive microscopic theory is reviewed which allows us to compute gain and refractive index properties of semiconductor heterostructures with varying degrees of strain and quantum confinement. The theory is applied to a model unstable resonator semiconductor laser. It is shown that the specific properties of the gain medium strongly influence the lateral mode stability.
