Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs) : Types & Applications Paperback / softback
Edited by Joseph D. Bennett
Quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) are unipolar devices with lasing occurring through transitions between quantised energy levels within the conduction band.
When compared to conventional lasers (e.g. gas, liquid or solid state lasers), these new optoelectronic devices present a fundamental advantage that resides in their ability to tailor the wavelength of the emitted light via the layer thickness rather than the band gap.
This book discusses different types and applications of quantum cascade lasers.
