9780071457927: Intersubband Transitions In Quantum Structures (McGraw-Hill Nanoscience and Technology)

Advances in epitaxial growth and nanofabrication technology in the past several years have made it possible to engineer sophisticated semiconductor quantum devices with unprecedented control of their electronic and optical properties. A particularly important class of such devices is based on intersubband transitions, i.e. optical transitions between quantized electronic states in semiconductor heterostructures. Most notably, mid-infrared quantum-well infrared photodetectors (QWIPs) and quantum cascade lasers nowadays offer superior performance for applications such as thermal imaging, spectroscopy, and biochemical sensing, and have recently become commercially available. Intersubband devices also have the potential for a revolutionary impact in the fields of silicon photonics, terahertz sensing, and ultra-high-bandwidth fiber-optic communications, and extensive research is ongoing to fulfill this promise. Joined by an international group of world experts, Paiella describes the basic device physics and applications of intersubband transitions, as well as the more recent and important developments in this exciting area of semiconductor nanotechnology.

From the Back Cover:

This volume provides a comprehensive review of the basic physics and applications of optoelectronic devices based on intersubband transitions in semiconductor quantum structures. Written by a team of world-class experts, this landmark guide describes both the fundamentals of operation of intersubband devices and the more recent and important developments in this exciting area of semiconductor nanotechnology. Topics covered include:

  • High-performance and high-speed mid-infrared quantum cascade lasers
  • Terahertz semiconductor lasers
  • Quantum well infrared photodetectors
  • Physics and applications of intersubband transitions in quantum dots
  • Nonlinear optics with intersubband transitions
  • Intersubband absorption and emission in silicon-based quantum structures
  • Ultrafast intersubband all-optical switching at telecommunication wavelengths

This book will be useful to scientists and engineers engaged in research and development work on intersubband devices, as well as graduate students interested in the fields of semiconductor quantum structures and optoelectronic devices.

About the Author:

Roberto Paiella, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Boston University. He has extensive research experience in photonics and semiconductor device physics, and has designed and developed several novel devices in the areas of all-optical switching, intersubband optoelectronics, photonic integrated circuits, and high-speed diode lasers. Dr. Paiella holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Columbia University and a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from the California Institute of Technology. Prior to joining Boston University, he worked at Bell Laboratories and Lucent Technologies and in the Optoelectronics Division of Agere Systems.
