Tunnel injection lasers are an appealing concept for the next generation of semiconductor lasers, as they promise improved modulation rates and better temperature stability. Moreover, they eliminate a major detrimental effect of quantum dot lasers, which is the gain nonlinearity caused by hot carriers. The introduction of a tunnel barrier for controlling the coupling of quantum dots (QDs) to an injector quantum well (QW) introduces significant design changes in comparison to conventional QD or QW lasers. As a result, nanoscale physics and quantum mechanical interaction processes take a more important role in the device properties. This poses new challenges to our theoretical understanding and increases the need for applying microscopic models. We present a theoretical study of dynamical laser properties inclusing the transport within the device and show the impact of alignment between the injector quantum well and the QDs on the laser switch-on process and modulation properties. These are important for the use of these laser systems in novel telecommunication applications.
