In this chapter, we present a brief overview of the QCL technology with an emphasis on the commercially important 3 μm to 12 μm spectral region covering the infrared fingerprint spectral region and the two infrared atmospheric windows (3 to 5 μm and 8 to 12 μm). Specifically, laser core design, waveguide design, and various aspects of mode control for QCLs are discussed below.

Chapter Contents:

  • 4.1 Introduction
  • 4.2 Governing equations for pulsed QCL operation
