Abstract

A theoretical consideration of quantum dot lasers shows many advantages due to the zero dimensionality of their electronic states. In a practical system the dots are embedded within a wetting layer and this has a major influence on the laser performance. As such, the influence of the wetting layer on the dynamic performance of dot lasers is noted. This paper concentrates on the effect it has on the differential gain.
