Understanding QD Laser Regimes of Operation
Understanding GS-quenching is made difficult, by the high dimensionality of the system and the many experimentally not accessible variables. When described in a non-excitonic picture, one needs to at least include four different carrier reservoirs and two electric field amplitudes. Korenev et al. [KOR13a] have analytically solved a somewhat reduced representation of this system, by assuming a common hole GS level and neglecting charge conservation. They are able to derive GS-quenching light-current characteristics by assuming that holes are less likely to enter the QD than electrons. Yet they lack an explicit modelling of the current dependence.
