An alternative model, called Maxwell-effective Bloch equations (MEBE), has been developed. This model combines the space-time resolution with microscopic many-body effects in a way that is both accurate enough and computationally manageable. The recent progress in applying this model to vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSEL) is discussed. In this approach, the MEBE-model is adapted to VCSEL situation by assuming a fixed mode profile along the longitudinal direction in VCSELs.
