Abstract
Without accurate models of the modulation behavior of multi quantum wells (MQW) lasers, it would be impossible to construct simulation circuits that include the models, the driver circuits and so on. A study of equivalent circuit model of MQW lasers derived from three-level rate equations has been carried out. It can explain the carrier distribution, which can not be explained by traditional two-level model. Then the simulation of modulation behavior has been implemented in SPICE. Results of various modulation properties from the simulator have been discussed. Especially, the scheme was implemented in a hierarchic way, which means a much easier management. And this hierarchic way help to realize photonic design automation (PDA).
