Abstract
A physical optics laser model based on a many-body semiclassical laser theory of the gain medium is used to investigate the gain medium effects on the modal stability of an unstable resonator semiconductor laser. Quantum confinement or strain are shown to result in single-mode operation over significantly wider ranges of unstable resonator configurations and gain medium excitation.
