Researchers Demonstrate 100-Watt-Level Mid-infrared Lasers
Researchers Demonstrate 100-Watt-Level Mid-infrared Lasers
Northwestern University Press Release - December 1, 2009
Northwestern University researchers from the Center for Quantum Devices have achieved a breakthrough in quantum cascade laser (QCL) output power, delivering 120 watts from a single device at room temperature. In this work, Professor Razeghi’s team demonstrated that the ridge width of a broad-area QCL can be increased up to 400 microns, without suffering from filiamentation. As a result, room temperature peak output power as high as 120 watts was obtained from a single device, which is up from 34 watts only a year ago. ... [read more]

University Labs: Where Women Excel
University Labs: Where Women Excel
Society of Women Engineers Fall Magazine, Vol. 55, No. 4, p. 48-53 - September 30, 2009
What propels women to head university labs, especially when tenure and biological calendars collide? Manijeh Razeghi director of the Center for Quantum Devices at Northwestern University, stands in the its midst. She had the unique opportunity to build her center from the ground up. In her words, her goal was "to decrease the gap between research and production, while facing all the technical challenges and stringent requirements in order to ensure a safe and invigorating working environment." ...

Superlattices see in the dark
Superlattices see in the dark
SPIE Newsroom - July 28, 2009
Six years ago, the Center for Quantum Devices (CQD) at Northwestern University fabricated the first IR camera based on Type-II material. After that, the CQD focused on improving the optical and electrical performance of the imager. We developed a new variant of a type-II superlattice, called M-structure, because of the M-shape of the band alignment, which allows for more-flexible control of the energy gap, energy levels, and effective mass. Many processing imporovements were also developed. The design, fabrication, and processes improvments have combined to make type-II superlattices a viable alternative to HgCdTe for IR imaging. ...
