Abstract

Passive electrical circuits whose voltage and current equations are exactly equivalent to the small-signal rate equations of a semiconductor laser are derived to model an electrically modulated laser (verified to be the same as that given in the literature), an optically modulated laser (i.e., a laser used as an optical amplifier), and a multimode laser. These circuits offer a fast and efficient simulation tool with little computational complexity in which the small-signal assumption (i.e., small modulation range) is neither violated nor insufficient for the simulation.
