Paper Abstract

The effect of carrier-carrier relaxation and carrier - phonon relaxation on threshold characteristics of quantum well (QW) lasers is studied. Carrier relaxation time considerably depends on temperature, carrier density, and quantum well width. It is shown that in this case the gain coefficient becomes a more pronounced function of temperature and carrier density.
