Abstract
We present self-consisted approach for calculating output characteristics of quantum cascade lasers. Presented model is based on the analysis of 1½ period of the structure. The model solves self-consistently Schrödinger equation, Poisson equation and a full rate equations including electron-phonon scattering, electron-electron scattering, spontaneous emission and stimulated emission. Results of calculation are in good agreement with experimental data which shows validity of the model.
