Abstract

Ultrashort, intense pulse-excitation experiments in passive semiconductors have shown that carrier-carrier Coulomb scattering and carrier-LO phonon scattering provide very efficient relaxation processes of nonequilibrium carriers in semiconductors. In semiconductor lasers these relaxation processes have to complete with the stimulated recombination of carriers and the pump process due to carrier injection or optical excitation. Using a generalized quantum Boltzmann equation for the description of the excited-carrier system that includes carrier-carrier, carrier-phonon, and carrier-photon interaction together with a kinetic equation of photons, we discuss the carrier dynamics in the running laser.
