We present a spatially resolved semiclassical model for the simulation of semiconductor quantum-dot lasers including a multi-species description for the carriers along the optical active region. The model links microscopic determined quantities like scattering rates and dephasing times, that essentially depend via Coulomb interaction on the carrier densities, with macroscopic transport equations and equations for the optical field.
