This book provides an introduction to quantum cascade lasers, including the basic underlying models used to describe the device. It aims at giving a synthetic view of the topic including the aspects of the physics, the technology, and the use of the device. It should also provide a guide forthe application engineer to use this device in systems.The book is based on lecture notes of a class given for Masters and beginning PhD students. The idea is to provide an introduction to the new and exciting developments that intersubband transitions have brought to the use of the mid-infrared and terahertz region of the electromagnetic spectrum. Thebook provides an introductory part to each topic so that it can be used in a self-contained way, while references to the literature will allow deeper studies for further research.
Jerome Faist was born in Switzerland and obtained his Ph.D. in Physics in 1989 from the Swiss Institute of Technology in Lausanne. He then worked successively at IBM Rueschlikon (1989-91) and Bell Laboratories (1991-97). He was nominated full professor in the physics institute of the University of Neuchatel (1997) and then in the ETH Z...
