Heat is produced during the operation of an injection laser. The thermal conduction problems associated with the flow of the heat away from the junction region have been solved and the temperature increase of the junction has been calculated for several simple model cases. The results have been applied to the calculation of thermal limitations on the performance of gallium arsenide lasers.
