A self-consistent model of a single-frequency GaInAsP/InP laser diode under carrier heating conditions is presented. The problem is formulated using the rate equations approach to the coupled carrier-phononphoton system and includes a priori all important interaction processes. The carried out simulation shows the efficiency of a carrier heating induced high-speed modulation.
