Combinaison monolithique de lasers à cascade quantique par couplage évanescent

Abstract : During the last 10 years, the quantum cascade lasers performances in the mid-infrared have been considerably improved: the wall plug efficiency has reached values superior to 20%, with output power up to 5W in continuous wave operation, at room temperature. Those values have been achieved due to the reduction of the temperature sensibility of the lasers, with characteristic temperature T0 reaching 300K. The output power is now limited to the injected power, which is proportional to the gain region size. This thesis reports an innovating solution consisting on beam combining an array of narrow emitters, monolithically. We experimentally demonstrate for the first time devices of up to 32 emitters of 2µm width emitting in phase by evanescent coupling. Moreover, we show record thermal resistance. Those results highlight the possibility to fabricate high power sources (superior to 10 W) in the mid-infrared, with a good beam quality.
