There are some interesting aspects to laser diodes, which may
not have an electrical signature in SPICEs - for example there is
a threshold current below which you get light but not coherent,
and you want to stay on the right side of. And there is variation
of wavelength with temperature & power, etc. which might drive
you (heh) to control "on" current carefully as well.
