The development of heteroepitaxy growth and laser fabrication for the monolithic integration of InP-based quantum cascade laser (QCL) structures onto silicon substrates. Fully optimized QCLs-on-Si will deliver over 5W of CW power in a nearly diffraction limited beam (M2 < 1.5) with 25% wallplug efficiency. These devices will find immediate applications in directed infrared countermeasures, integrated platforms for man-portable or UAV-based chemical/biological sensing, environmental monitoring, out-of-band active (hyperspectral) imaging/illumination, and other infrared DoD applications.
