A microscopic model is used to analyze gain and loss properties of (GaIn) (NAs) GaAs quantum wells in the 1.3-1.55 μm range, including Auger and radiative recombination. The calculations show that, as long as good material quality can be achieved, growing highly compressively strained samples is preferable due to their specific band structure properties. Optimum laser operation is possible slightly above a peak gain of 1000 cm-1.
