We propose a computationally efficient approach for the simulation and design of index-guided quantum-dot (QD) passively mode-locked lasers with tapered gain section; the method is based on the combination of simulations based on a finite difference beam-propagation-method and dynamic simulations of mode-locking via a multi-section delayed differential equation model. The impact of varying the taper full angle on the pulse duration and peak power is investigated; simulations show that a correct choice of this parameter enables the generation of sub-picosecond optical pulses with peak power exceeding 5 W.
