The possibility of using the self-induced transparency effect to passively modelock lasers has been discussed since the late 1960s, but has never been observed. It is proposed that quantum cascade lasers are the ideal tool to create this modelocking, due to their rapid recovery times and relatively long coherence times and because it is possible to(More)
The temperature dependence of coherent carrier transport in quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) is studied in this paper. It was found that coherent carrier transport in QCLs decreases as the temperature increases because the coherence between the injector and active region energy levels decays at a faster rate with increasing temperature. Calculations show that(More)
The possibility of using the self-induced transparency effect to achieve laser mode locking has been discussed since the late 1960s but has never been observed. In prior work, we proposed that quantum cascade lasers are the ideal tool to realize self-induced transparency mode locking due to their rapid gain recovery times and relatively long coherence(More)

We consider the impact of saturable nonlinearity and group velocity dispersion on self-induced transparency (SIT) modelocking of quantum cascade lasers (QCLs). We find that self-induced transparency modelocking in QCLs can be obtained in the presence of saturable nonlinearity if the saturable loss or gain is below a critical limit. The limit for the(More)
Work to date on self-induced transparency modelocking in quantum cascade lasers ͑QCLs͒ has neglected backward-propagating waves and lumped mirror losses. In this work, we remove these unrealistic assumptions. The qualitative features of the modelocking are unaffected by this improvement in the model, but the parameter regime in which stable modelocked(More)
We theoretically show that quantum coherent saturable absorption can be used to obtain ultra-short pulses from mid-infrared quantum cascade lasers (QCLs). In this proposal, quantum cascade structures are processed as two electrically isolated sections. The two sections will be biased with two different voltages so that one of the sections produces gain as(More)
