Structure of active region and waveguide of QCL. (a) Sketch of conduction band structure, where the red arrow represents photon emission from bond state to continuum state and blue arrow represents phonon emission for fast carrier depletion. (b) Calculated electric field distribution of the laser with a single plasmon waveguide. The calculation was performed at a frequency of 4.2 THz.
