Paper Abstract

This paper analyses the gain and carrier-induced refractive index change in group-III nitride quantum wells. An approach based on the semiconductor Bloch equations with carrier-carrier collisions treated at the level of quantum kinetic theory is used. The influences of the strong carrier-carrier Coulomb interaction and the quantum-confined Stark effect on laser threshold and output beam quality are discussed.
