Abstract

A full scale simulation model, that resolves the spatio- temporal behavior of competing longitudinal mode and transverse filamentation instabilities in a wide variety of high brightness edge emitter geometries, is presented. The model is highly modular and is built on a first principles microscopic physics basis. The nonlinear optical response function of the semiconductor, computed for specific QW structures, covers the low-density absorption to high density gain saturation regimes. As an illustration of its robustness as a laser design tool, the model is applied to a monolithically integrated flared amplifier master oscillator power amplifier semiconductor laser.
