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 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)
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)
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 present a model to estimate the gain recovery of quantum cascade lasers (QCLs). We implement the model for two QCLs with different quantum mechanical designs. It is found that both incoherent scattering and coherent tunnelling are important for gain recovery, however, their relative importance depends on the quantum mechanical design and the operating(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)
Quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) are the most promising light sources for optical spectroscopy in the molecular finger-print mid-infrared region. To this purpose, QCLs are required to be wavelength selective and the change of emission wavelength needs to be known beforehand as the operating conditions, such as the applied bias changes. In this paper, we study(More)
Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) is extremely unique in its characteristics due to its narrow bandwidth resulting from unipolar operation, mid-infrared emission, and wavelength tunability by quantum mechanical engineering. While lasing, the change in temperature affects the cavity length of the QCL, which in turn may affect the emission wavelength. In this work,(More)
