Paper Abstract

The existing model of Fermi sea shake up to explain the excess transverse magnetic component in optical emission from quantum well lasers is inadequate beyond the lasing threshold condition. In this paper we propose that when lasing occurs the heavy hole wave-function loses directionality and has equal projections in x, y and z directions.
