Paper Abstract

A coupled quantum dot intersubband optical amplifier structure is reported. InGaAsP/GaAs supperlattice is used to effectively generate population inversion between the excited states and the ground state of the QD. Due to the three-dimensional quantum confinement, normal incidence optical amplification with low threshold current density can be expected. Such an intersubband optical amplifier is promising for highly-sensitive middle infrared (MWIR) and longwave infrared sensing and imaging.
