Abstract

A rate equation theory for quantum-dot-based nanolaser devices is developed. We show that these rate equations are capable of reproducing results of a microscopic semiconductor theory, making them an appropriate starting point for complex device simulations of nanolasers. The input-output characteristics and the modulation response are investigated and the limits of the rate equation approach are discussed.
