This doctoral thesis deals with the development and implementation of advanced physical models and numerical methods for the simulation of quantum-well semiconductor lasers. Furthermore, it proposes a circuit-like simulation approach to the modeling of complex and integrated optoelectronic devices. The goal of the thesis is to provide a comprehensive simulator that is suitable for applications in industrial environments. The work presented here is based on the commercial multi-dimensional semiconductor laser simulator Dessis-Laser that is embedded into the ISE TCAD suite. This enables the use of advanced meshing, visualization and parameter optimization tools.

Michael Pfeiffer studied Physics at the University of Konstanz (Germany) and at the University of Bristol (UK), and received his diploma (M.Sc.) degree from the University of Konstanz in 1999. After his graduation he joined the Integrated Systems Laboratory at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zürich as a research and teaching assistant. His main research interests are in the field of numerical modeling and simulation of optoelectronic semiconductor devices.

Keywords: Optoelectronic Devices, Technology Computer Aided Design, Quantum-Well Lasers.
