We demonstrate theoretically that the lateral field distribution can be utilized to enhance the relaxation oscillation frequency of semiconductor lasers. It is found, for some laser parameters, that gain-guided semiconductor lasers with narrow stripe can exhibit higher relaxation oscillation frequency than index-guided devices.
