Corrections to the rate equation approximation are derived and applied to a semiconductor laser. Whereas these corrections do not affect the operating point of the device, they do alter the dynamic operation. To first order the correction produces a renormalization of familiar dynamic parameters. This renormalization, in turn, leads to a 20% correction to the field spectrum linewidth formula.
