Abstract

Modern semiconductor optical devices can consist of a complex arrangement of several different semiconductor crystal layers. By further processing, the semiconductor structure is then shaped into the desired device geometry. Additional steps, such as planarization and contacting, are then required to yield the final usable device. Naturally, a complete microscopic description of the resulting object in all its degrees of freedom is not tractable. Therefore, a restriction to only few degrees of freedom is required, while still maintaining all necessary aspects determining the system behavior.
