Abstract:

Nonequilibrium carrier distributions in microcavity lasers are computed by solution of a quantum Boltzmann equation that includes carrier- carrier-phonon, and carrier-photon scattering as well as the pump process. A significant heating of the carrier plasma is observed as a consequence of the Pauli blocking of carrier injection and the removal of cold carriers through the process of stimulated recombination.
