Quantum Cascade Lasers: From Band Structure Engineering to Commercialization
C. Kumar N. Patel, Ph.D. President & CEO, Pranalytica, Inc. USA
19 March 2013, 13:00 - 17:00
In this intermediate level course, the physics of QCLs, design principles, supported by modeling, along with state-of-the-art performance in the mid-ir and Terahertz will be reviewed. A broad range of applications and their ongoing commercial development will be discussed. The course will cover exciting developments such as new light-sources that uses the giant resonant nonlinear susceptibilities of quantum engineered structures to achieve high conversion efficiency at satellite wavelengths, ultrabroadband lasers, ultrashort pulse operation, photonic crystal QCls, optofluidic QCLs as well as QCL incorporating optical antennas on the laser facets.
