Abstract

Remarkable progress on terahertz quantum cascade lasers (THz-QCLs) has been made since their first demonstration in 2002 [1]. However, operation of THz-QCLs at room temperature has not yet been realized. Recently, our group and Yamanishi et al. proposed novel designs of THz-QCLs, called the four-level (4L) scheme, which promises a much higher gain than the current phonon-depopulation (RP) designs of a three-level scheme [2,3]. The 4L scheme intends to improve electron injection to the upper lasing level, utilizing an additional subband level. Operation of the indirect-pump 4L QCL proposed by Yamanishi et al. at 8 m was reported [3]. The characteristic temperature T0 of 303 K of this laser is the highest among the reported QCLs.
