Abstract
The dynamic response of a multiple-quantum well (MQW) laser is investigated assuming that it can possess multiple levels. The results reveal that the lowest heavy-hole and the lowest light-hole transitions are dominant. In the low-power range the heavy-hole transition dominates, while in the high-power range there is a mixing of the heavy-hole and the light- hole transitions. In the last case the frequency response is improved and it can be correctly predicted only treating the MQW as a three-level system.
