Paper Abstract

In this paper, our main goal was to simulate vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSEL) characteristics, including the threshold current, transient phenomena, and modulation operation. The simulation results of transient response and the phase diagram of the carrier and photon are given. We have got the relation of spontaneous emission factor, current and aperture size on threshold, turn-on delay, relaxation oscillations frequency, and output power. Furthermore, it is found that the threshold current, light current curves, transient phenomena, and modulation operation of a VCSEL are determined by size-dependent.
