ACCURATE NONLINEAR VOLTERRA SERIES ANALYSIS FOR VERTICAL-CAVITY SURFACE-EMITTING LASERS
A. M. Matarneh and S. S. A. Obayya
In this letter, an accurate nonlinear Volterra series analysis for vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) is presented. Closed-form expressions for the modulation response, harmonic distortions, and second- and third-order intermodulation distortions are derived. Moreover, the suggested nonlinear model avoids the numerical solution of laser rate equations and provides in-depth insight of a distortion analysis of VCSEL.
