D03 – 3D multiphysics transient modeling of vertical Ge-on-Si pin waveguide photodetectors

Alasio M. G. C., Franco P., Tibaldi A., Bertazzi F., Namnabat S., Adams D., Gothoskar P., Masini G., Forghieri F., Ghione G., Goano M.

We report transient simulations of Ge-on-Si vertical pin waveguide photodetectors (WPDs), where the optical generation term used by the time-domain model is the FDTD solution of the electromagnetic problem treated as a spatially-distributed pulsed signal. This approach, validated against experimental measurements of the frequency response, paves the way to future studies of the dynamic response […]

LD04 – Modeling carrier transport in mid-infrared VCSELs with type-II superlattices and tunnel junctions

Torrelli V., Montoya J. A. G., Tibaldi A., Debernardi P., Simaz A., Belkin M. A., Goano M., Bertazzi F.

Vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers are promising light sources for sensing and spectroscopy applications in the midinfrared 3 ÷4 µm spectral region. A type-II superlattice active region is used for carrier injection and confinement, while a buried tunnel junction defines a current aperture, decreasing the series resistivity. Highly nanostructured to optimize device performance, mid-infrared VCSELs pose modeling […]

LD07 – Physics-based time-domain modeling of VCSELs

D’Alessandro M., Gullino G., Tibaldi A., Bertazzi F., Goano M., Debernardi P.

This paper presents the results of a physics-based time-domain simulator for a vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL). We implemented a trapezoidal rule second order backward differentiation formula (TR-BDF2) to simulate the large signal response of the device under investigation, including the parasitic effects of the pin junction arising from an interplay of optical and carrier transport […]
