Progress towards Si/Ge terahertz quantum cascade lasers is reviewed, and the relative merits of different Si/Ge materials configurations for such lasers are compared. The prospects for Gebased quantum cascade lasers are discussed, and supported by simulation work for realistic laser designs. Experimental progress and challenges are assessed.
