Paper Abstract

A well-known characteristic of gain-guided heterostructure lasers without any deliberate longitudinal asymmetry is a difference in the output power from the two facets. A possible explanation of this behavior is explored using a computer code based on the beam propagation method. Lasers with longitudinally varying degrees of lateral spreading of the current from under the conducting stripe were simulated. Output power curves are similar to experimental values.
