not yet rated|write a review
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.
