We investigate the influence of the coupling between localized and continuum states on the optical gain and refractive index in self-organized quantum-dot structures under high-excitation conditions. For wide-bandgap nitride-based quantum-dot structures we show that the presence of strong many-body Coulomb interactions and the quantum-confined Stark effect result in absorption/gain features that depend on the quantum-dot dimensions in a nontrivial way. For InAs/GaAs based quantum dots, we investigate the refractive index properties and show that negative α or linewidth enhancement factors may occur in these systems, which makes the beam quality (filamentation) properties of quantum-dot lasers very different from quantum-well lasers. This is consistent with measurements which show a reduction in quantum-dot laser filamentation as the injection level is increased.
