Enhanced normalized laser rate equations suitable for large signal analyses and system level simulations are discussed. A large signal laser model including thermal effects and incorporating a modified laser gain formulation is presented. Symbolically defined devices (SDDs) implemented in the Hewlett Packard Advanced Design System (HP-ADS) are constructed using the proposed laser model. The effects of temperature on the transient response characteristics of 1.3 μm InGaAsP/InP Fabry-Perot lasers are predicted using the SDD implementation.
