The carrier density modulation response of a semiconductor laser medium is analyzed. The differential gain and linewidth enhancement factor are computed as functions of strain and threshold gain. The example of InGaAs/InP with different InAs content is used to illustrate the situations of zero, tensile and compressive strain.
