The dynamics of single-mode quantum dot lasers is modeled theoretically. It is predicted that, assuming reasonable material properties, eye-patterns remain open for 5 Gbit/s large signal modulation within a finite spectral range (>50 nm), corresponding to 64 wavelength division multiplexing channels with 0.8 nm separation. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
