Photonics tunes quantum cascade laser
Using photonic-crystal techniques, a research team at Lucent Technologies Bell Laboratories has created a vertically emitting quantum-cascade laser that is said to be more compact than previous QC lasers. Combined with vertical emission and tunability, the development could open new application areas in sensors, the researchers said.
