Paper Abstract

In this work we present a study of the nonlinear behavior of semiconductor laser diodes by using mainly circuit model analysis. By numerical integration and by equivalent circuit modeling of the laser rate equations we have studied the dynamics of a semiconductor laser under strong sinusoidal modulation. The circuit model approach allows also to study the influence of parasitic effects in the pulsed modulation response of the laser. We demonstrate the importance of considering the parasitic effect and the restriction imposed by the bandwidth of the equivalent parasitic circuit in the treatment and the observation of the nonlinear behavior of semiconductor lasers.
