Abstract

The nanosecond dynamics of near-infrared semiconductor disk lasers is investigated experimentally and theoretically. Lasing and photoluminescence following barrier pumping are analyzed. Their spectral and temporal features such as luminescence overshoot and clamping, delay of lasing onset, and redshift of the emission are explained by a rate equation model taking into account the microscopic gain and luminescence.
