Abstract

We present an improved coupled-mode model to describe the dynamics of weakly index-guided semiconductor laser arrays. The model is derived from a partial differential equation model that includes the effects of carrier diffusion and gain guiding. Results from the two models are compared, and good qualitative and quantitative agreement is obtained.
