We discuss a number of theoretical and experimental issues in quantum well lasers with emphasis on the basic behavior of the gain, the field spectrum, and the modulation dynamics. It is revealed that the use of quantum well structures results in improvement of these properties and brings several new concepts to optical semiconductor devices.
