Control of the intensity and position of the near field is demonstrated in an analysis of twin-stripe and triple-stripe injection lasers. Calculations of file electrooptical properties of the structures are presented, taking into account the interaction between the carrier concentration profile and the optical field. For twin-stripe devices interstripe coupling is investigated as a function of stripe separation. For stripe separation comparable with stripewidth, the properties of triple-stripe lasers become of interest. Nonlinear light-current characteristics for the twin-stripe device are obtained and lead to an interpretation of such characteristics in conventional stripe geometry lasers.
