Paper Abstract

Quantum cascade laser (QCL) is a semiconductor based laser in a superlattice structure based on intersubband transitions. Although QCLs have been achieved with high performance such as Watt-level emission, it is always highly desired to further improve the device performance with multiple functions , for example, achieving high beam collimation, arbitrary polarization control, and high speed modulation. It is also desired that those performance could be achieved through an integrated approach for miniaturalization, easy alignment and reducing cost. In this presentation, we will use Terahertz (THz) QCL as a demonstration example to obtain high collimated THz QCLs through plasmonic collimation designs with a record beam divergence, electrically tunable THz polarizations by designing integrated THz metasurfaces on a hybrid dielectric-plasmonic waveguides, and broadband graphene-based integrated THz modulators with a fast modulating speed.
