Content: The quantization of the active laser medium has enabled numerous advances in fiber-optic communications, e.g., higher efficiency of laser diodes, higher modulation bandwidth, lower spectral linewidth of the emitted signal. In recent years the quantum dot lasers have demonstrated a strong potential to continue this trend, therefore, by progressing from standard quantum well to quantum dot designs, it can be expected that the quantum dot lasers will play an increasingly important role in future fiber-optic communications.

The research work presented in this dissertation seeks to further develop the quantum dot laser designs and improve the understanding of complex operating conditions affecting the laser linewidth. This is achieved by developing a comprehensive laser simulator, that was applied to design and simulation of edge-emitting lasers and laser arrays. As a result, the optimized laser diodes have demonstrated a significantly lower linewidth compared to equivalent quantum well designs. Due to their narrow linewidth, the realized photonic devices can be a viable solution for high bit rate fiber-optic networks.
