Abstract—An analytical model for internal optical losses at high power in a 1.5 μm
laser diode with strong n-doping in the n-side of the optical confinement layer is
created. The model includes intervalence band absorption by holes supplied by
both current flow and two-photon absorption, as well as the direct two-photon
absorption effect. The resulting losses are compared with those in an identical
structure with a weakly doped waveguide, and shown to be substantially lower,
resulting in a significant improvement in the output power and efficiency in the
structure with a strongly doped waveguide
