The determination of gain properties in group III nitride quantum wells is complicated by the incomplete knowledge of band structure properties, and the need for a consistent treatment of many‐body Coulomb effects. This letter describes an approach that involves a first‐principles band structure calculation, the results of which are incorporated into a microscopic laser theory where many‐body Coulomb effects are treated in a consistent manner. Using this approach, we investigate quantum well… CONTINUE READING
