We apply coupled-wave theory to describe the lateral modes of semiconductor lasers with a periodic gain and refractive-index variation across their widths. The model is relevant to devices whose complex index of refraction is determined by current injection from closely spaced parallel electrodes. Good agreement is observed between the analytical modes and those computed numerically for comparison.
