Paper Abstract

A new version of the Minilase laser simulator is presented. This version self-consistently calculates the bulk carrier transport, quantum capture, spectral hole burning, and radiative processes present in quantum well laser diodes. Minilase is used to investigate the effects of carrier capture and spectral hole burning on the modulation response and to determine their relative significance. Also, a Monte Carlo simulation of carrier capture and scattering within the quantum well is presented. This simulator includes all relevant carrier-photon, carrier- phonon, and carrier-carrier interactions. A comparison of the carrier distributions calculated by the Mont Carlo and the Minilase simulators is used to validate the methods used in Minilase.
