Quantum cascade lasers: a LTCI publication in the Top Papers of Advanced Photonics01 June 2022
Advanced Photonics is an open access, international journal, with a strong impact factor, publishing innovative research in all areas of optics and photonics, including fundamental and applied research.
Published in October 2020, Olivier Spitz’s paper, written under the supervision of Frédéric Grillot, Professor at GTO, and in collaboration with other international researchers [*], describes the exhibition of extreme pulses in quantum cascade lasers. Extreme events in quantum cascade lasers would make it possible to envisage optical neurons 10,000 times faster than biological neurons. Industrial applications of fast dynamics include spectroscopy, optical countermeasures, neurophotonics and free-space optical communications.
