Rabi splitting in quantum well (QW) embedded in microcavities under strong coupling condition is modeled by a time-dependent transfer matrix model. The spectral response of QW under the influence of excitonic effects is simulated by infinite impulse digital filters. It is shown that the splitting energy obtained from the proposed model match well with that deduced from the reflection spectrum analysis. The lasing spectra observed from different transmission angles of the QW microcavity can also be calculated. Hence, it is proved that the proposed model can be used to design and analyze the lasing characteristics of QW microcavities under strong coupling condition.
