New PDF release: Dynamic Scenarios in Two-State Quantum Dot Lasers: Excited

André Röhm investigates the dynamic houses of two-state lasing quantum dot lasers, with a spotlight on floor country quenching. With a singular semi-analytical method, diverse quenching mechanisms are mentioned in an unified framework and confirmed with numerical simulations. The identified effects and experimental findings are reproduced and parameter dependencies are systematically studied.
