Paper Abstract

We validate a microscopic laser model based on the quantum kinetic equations using experimentally determined threshold current, gain, spontaneous emission and quasi-Fermi level separation data taken on GaInP/AlGaInP lasers. By comparison of further experimental and calculated optical properties we find that there is a significant contribution to the threshold current from non-radiative recombination within the quantum wells.
