Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A surface emitting Quantum Cascade injection laser is presented. Direct surface emission is obtained by using a 2D photonic-band-gap structure that simultaneously acts as a microcavity. The approach may allow miniaturization and on-chip-integration of the devices.
