Paper Abstract

A computer model for the optical gain of graded-index, separate-confinement-heterostructure, single-quantum-well (GRIN-SCH-SQW) Alx Ga1-xAs diode lasers is presented, and compared with experimental data. The model combines many individual features not heretofore included together, and gives good agreement with gain vs current density data for two different structure variations. In addition, the threshold temperature dependence agrees well with data for typical laser conditions, the observed high-gain discontinuity in T° vs temperature is explained, and new predictions are made concerning T° discontinuities at gain cross-overs.
