Title: Optimization of Strain Balanced Heterostructures for High Power 4-5 Micron Quantum Cascade Lasers
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Contract: W911NF-05-C-0118
Award Amount: $749,631.00
 

Abstract:

The mid-infrared (3-5 micron) spectral region is filled with possibilities for laser applications, but most lasers in this wavelength are bulky and/or require cryogenic cooling. The quantum cascade laser is a compact, diode-based laser technology that has the potential for high power operation at room temperature. In this proposal, we outline a plan for development of short wavelength (lambda < 5 microns) quantum cascade lasers for both high average power (1 W) and single-mode, continuous-wave operation at room temperature.
