Optoelectronic devices (ODs) are discrete components interacting with light, placed in an electronic circuit that finds applications in areas such as  optical storage and solid state visible light sources. Sophisticated simulation tools incorporating accurate physical models are required for the design and yield improvement of ODs. For this purpose a microscopic simulation approach is preferred to SPICE-like modeling. In the first part of this work an accurate finite-element simulation of the electrical, optical and thermal properties of a 980 nm power laser diode (LD) manufactured by Bookham is presented. In the second part of this work a comprehensive modeling of GaN laser diodes manufactured by OSRAM is presented. Simulations allow capturing in a comprehensive picture all the physical mechanism behind device operation with the aim to optimize the electro-optical performance and to design novel devices.
