Abstract

We study the decrease of the ground-state output with increasing current in two-state quantum dot lasing. We show that the asymmetry in the thermal population redistribution breaks the symmetric dynamical evolution of the electron-hole pairs. This fully explains the transition from two-state to single-state lasing observed experimentally. The model also reproduces the temperature dependence of the two-state lasing
