Paper Abstract

A comprehensive microscopic theory that includes bandgap renormalization, plasma screening and interband Coulomb effects is used to calculate the gain and carrier-induced refractive index in an active semiconductor medium. This paper describes the effects of these many-body interactions on bulk and quantum well structures.
