Abstract:n this article, numerical methods for modeling photonic devices having coupled electrical and optical fields are presented. The governing equations characterizing the problem are presented as well as algorithms for computing numerical solutions. The coupling between the electrical and optical field is introduced as a generation or recombination term for the drift-diffusion model. The numerical results of a semiconductor laser device which is under investigation for use in all-optical communications systems are also given.
