Modeling of vertical cavity surface emitting lasers using modified time-domain traveling wave algorithm

Research output: Journal article publicationConference articleAcademic researchpeer-review


The use of time-dependent transfer matrix and wide-angle beam propagation method is proposed to improve the computational speed and accuracy of a recently developed time-domain traveling-wave model of vertical cavity surface emitting lasers. With suitable utilization of the transfer matrix, significant reduction of the total execution time of the traveling-wave model can be obtained. In addition, the use of wide-angle beam propagation method can minimize the calculation error of the traveling-wave model due to the diffraction of light from small aperture of laser cavity.
