Modeling of high-power diodes poses several numerical problems. They require algorithms capable of capturing accurately the fast temporal and spatial dynamics in a broad spectral range. Another problem is how to reconcile vastly different time scales of various physical processes involved. We present an outline of a semiconductor laser simulation engine that incorporates both the first-principles many body gain calculations, and the carrier and heat transport simulation into an interactive computer laser model.
