A diode-laser array model, solving the two-dimensional Laplace equation in the passive layer and the carrier diffusion equation in the active layer in a self-consistent manner, is presented. The model is general and does not make use of the usual one-dimensional approximation to the current spreading problem. The beam-propagation method used in solving the wave equation eases the inclusion of any axial variations.
