Abstract

A terahertz quantum cascade laser has been realized from an isotropic disordered hyperuniform design. Such a system presents a photonic band-gap although it is characterized by an efficient depletion of the long range order. Hyperuniform patterns allow greater versatility in engineering band gaps in comparison to standard photonic-crystal materials. Bidimensional hyperuniform patterns were simulated for hexagonal tiles composed of high refractive index disks merged in a low dielectric constant polymeric matrix. Based on this design, quantum cascade lasers were fabricated by standard photolithography, metal evaporation, lift-off and dry-etching techniques in a half-stack bound to continuum active region emitting around 2.9 THz. © (2015) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
