Abstract

The method of the finite domain-time domain (FDTD) solution of the full-wave vectorial Maxwell-Block equations for a two-level quantum system developed was applied to investigate the nonlinear gain spatio-temporal dynamics of an active semiconductor microcavity. As such, a number of validation studies was performed in order to establish the ability of the 1D semiclassical model to correctly recover the nonlinear gain dynamics of a homogeneously broadened two-level saturable gain medium. It was found that the nonlinear gain medium was embedded in a realistic semiconductor microcavity geometries.
