Paper Abstract

Different rate equation systems were used to analyze quantum-well (QW) lasers characteristics. Numerical simulations based on solving the nonlinear differential equations which describe the behavior of this kind of devices are done for each of these models using MATHCAD data analysis software which has the advantage of solving complicated systems starting from the familiar mathematical form. Another possibility is using SPICE as a nonlinear equations solver but finding the electrical model of the QW laser is sometimes difficult.
