In this paper, a simple yet effective model is developed to analyze the nonlinearity in power-current characteristics, also known as "kinks", observed in AlGaInP selectively-buried-ridge (SBR) laser diodes driven by narrow pulses (∼10-7s). The model takes the temperature-induced waveguide as well as the carrier distribution into account, and the simulation results show good agreement with the experiments. The main factors influencing the kink behavior of SBR lasers are investigated based on this model, and it is believed to be of great help for the optimization AlGaInP laser structure for high-power applications.
