Paper Abstract

Efficiency and mode control in coupled grating-surface-emitting diodes are important issues in the proper design of these devices. In these devices, radiation emission properties depend on the injection current of the different sections, and phase effects due to length variations, grating phase effects, and the boundary conditions of the particular design. A realistic model incorporating power saturation, saturable losses, and saturable dispersion effects is established. Optimization of operation by injection current control and phase modulation are studied.
