Abstract

We show by means of analytical and numerical calculations that saturation, in combination with the linewidth-enhancement factor and the finite rate of spin–flip processes, causes a redshift of the spontaneous-emission peak with respect to the off-lasing-mode frequency in the optical spectrum of a quantum-well vertical-cavity surface emitting laser.
