Abstract

We present third harmonic generation from an InGaAs/AlInAs Quantum Cascade laser based on a three-well diagonal transition active region with an integrated third-order nonlinear oscillator. The device displays pump radiation at λ ∼ 11.1 μm and third order nonlinear light generation at λ ∼ 3.7 μm as well as second harmonic generation at λ ∼ 5.4 μm.
