This dissertation deals with the physical modeling and simulation of mode locked, electrically pumped VECSELs (EP-VECSELs). In the first part, a TCAD study of the continuous wave steady state behavior is conducted. It results in a comprehensive set of design guidelines for the layout of EP-VECSELs which has been verified experimentally. The second part is concerned with the numerical simulation of VECSEL mode locking in time and frequency domain. A semiclassical mode locking model is derived from the semiconductor Maxwell Bloch equations. The prospects and limits of implicit and explicit time domain models are shown. A novel frequency domain approach for the simulation of mode locking dynamics is introduced and its applicability to the nonlinear lasing problem is demonstrated.
About the Author
Philipp Kreuter was born in W¨urzburg, Germany, in 1978. He received the B.Sc. and Dipl.-Ing. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany, in 2004 and 2005 respectively. From 2002 to 2003 he was on a SOCRATES exchange program at the ´Ecole Nationale Supérieure de l’Aèronautique et de l’Espace (ENSAE) in Toulouse, France, and the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV), Spain. From 2005 to 2010 he was a research and teaching assistant at the Integrated Systems Laboratory (IIS), ETH Zurich, Switzerland. His research interests lie in the field of numerical modeling, simulation, and design of optoelectronic devices with a focus on the highly complex nonlinear and dynamic processes in mode locked VECSELs
