Terahertz pulse generation from metal-metal quantum cascade lasers

Abstract

We demonstrate the generation of 11ps terahertz pulses from spectrally broad metal-metal quantum cascade lasers at 77K via active modelocking, and show the critical role of phase-matching between the terahertz pulse and the microwave modulation.
