Abstract
The comprehensive, three-dimensional, thermal-electrical- optical self-consistent model of the gain-guided vertical- cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) is applied to study behavior of its transverse modes. Many intensity maxima of higher-order modes were found to disappear because of a complex interplay between a real guiding effect and a gain antiguiding effect in VCSEL resonators. Therefore number of intensity maxima in experimental intensity profiles can not be used as an indicator of the mode order. Radiation losses of transverse modes were found to increase with an increase in their order.
