Abstract

A microscopic model for polarization switching in vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs) is presented. The model is based on a rigorous solution of Maxwell's equations coupled to generalized semiconductor Bloch equations. This model allows for a realistic modeling of optically anisotropic lasers, where the anisotropy is obtained from the first-principle calculations.
