A preliminary study of the dynamic behaviour of a GaAs/AlGaAs 850 nm VCSEL is presented, with the focus on the small-signal analysis and in particular on the optical amplitude modulation response. Simulations are performed with our in-house quantum-corrected one-dimensional drift-diffusion code D1ANA, updated to perform the AC analysis. The -3 dB cutoff frequency of the […]
In this work we investigate carrier transport in tunnel junctions for vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers by a novel self-consistent simulation framework for semiconductor quantum devices. Based on a Poisson-drift-diffusion foundation, in this approach quantum features are described through a nonequilibrium Green’s function formalism. The simulator is validated through a comparison with experimental results.
