Paper Abstract

The carrier lifetime is usually treated as a constant (called as the constant carrier lifetime assumption (CCLA)) during modeling theoretically the chaotic behaviors of semiconductor lasers. In this paper, after considering the actually recombination mechanism of the carriers in the semiconductor and the variation of the carrier lifetime with the time, the chaotic characteristics of semiconductor laser with optical feedback have been investigated numerically, and the obvious differences can be observed compared with those obtained with the CCLA.
