Integrated terahertz pulse generation and amplification in quantum cascade lasers

Abstract

Terahertz pulse generation is demonstrated by a resonant femtosecond interband excitation of the miniband of a quantum-cascade-laser. The laser gain is subsequently used to amplify the terahertz pulse generated as it propagates through the cavity.
