Paper Abstract

The active region of a type-II mid-IR quantum cascade laser with improved high-temperature performance is investigated by multiband k(DOT)p methods. The calculated results show that internal losses due to intervalence absorption have been suppressed successfully in this active region. A fourteen-band k(DOT)p approach is used and results for short period type-II InAs/GaSb superlattices are compared with an eight-band k(DOT)p method and a plane wave pseudopotential method.
