Small-signal two-port circuit models of packaged commerical broad-stripe and buried-heterojunction AlGaAs laser diodes are presented. The models are based on the single-mode rate equations, and include the heterojunction I-V and space-charge characteristics. Also included are package and substrate parasitic. The models agree well with measured reflection coefficient and modulation frequency response data, and can be incorporated in standard microwave circuit analysis programs.
