Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An equivalent three-layer analysis is presented in terms of reduced universal variables for the calculation of optimal waveguides of semiconductor lasers to minimise threshold current gain. The accuracy of this analysis is within a few per cent of more rigorous calculations.
