Paper Abstract

An electrical equivalent circuit for quantum well absorptive bistable laser diode has been developed from rate equations. The carrier transport effects are studied by simulating the circuit for dc sweep and transient conditions using circuit simulator Pspice. The hysterisis width is found to vary nonlinearly for lower values of transport time and linearly for higher values. The turn on delay increases with transport time in transient operation.
