Abstract

A successful comparison of experimental GaInP gain spectra, over a relatively wide excitation range, using microscopic semiconductor gain theory was reported. The microscopic gain model was used consistently with the Hartree-Fock contributions leading to band-gap renormalization and Coulomb enhancement of the optical transitions, as well as the collisional contributions. The band structure information was incorporated into the gain calculations through the optical transition frequencies and dipole matrix elements. The agreement between the theoretically determined spectra and the experimental data gave a knowledge of the band structure and the effects occurring in the material at high carrier densities.
