Paper Abstract

The transient radiation oscillation process and generation instabilities in quantum-well laser systems are investigated in detail. A novel type of laser with quantum-well layers of various thickness is considered. The conditions for lasing switching with increasing the excitation current and for regular optical pulse generation have been determined. The calculations have been performed for the GaAs-AlGaAs system. The developed mathematical models and rate equations can be used to describe dynamics of laser action in quantum-well systems on other materials too.
