Abstract
A fully quantum electrodynamical model is presented for the spontaneous emission of light from a quantum well system in a vertical cavity device. The model solves the combined Maxwell and Schrodinger equations to describe the time evolution of both the carrier populations in the quantum well and the radiation field. Structures that present major challenges to other models can be handled by our model without any difficulty. Our model is validated against more standard approaches to the spontaneous emission problem for a simple case.
