A self-consistent analytical thermal-electrical model is developed to simulate thermal properties of etched-well InGaAsP/InP buried-heterostructure VCSELs with dielectric mirrors. The model is then used to investigate the influence of various design parameters on device performance. In particular, we examine the effects of varying the P-cladding doping level, active-region-, mirror-, and well-diameters, solder material, and mirror materials. We find that the dielectric mirrors are the most critical elements of the device. To increase the output power/operation temperature of the device, both mirrors must have high thermal conductivity and minimal scattering loss.
