Paper Abstract

The semiconductor laser simulator Minilase has been integrated with a novel optical mode solver in order to simulate vertical cavity surface emitting lasers. The electronic and optical solvers are reviewed, and the interaction between the two solvers is presented in detail. The combined simulator recalculates the optical modes in response to changing electronic conditions without requiring prohibitively large computational resources.
