Monte Carlo study of carrier-light coupling in terahertz quantum cascade lasers
We present a method for self-consistently including the optical cavity field into Monte Carlo-based carrier transport simulations. This approach allows for an analysis of the actual lasing operation in quantum cascade lasers, considering effects such as gain, saturation, and longitudinal mode competition. Simulation results for a terahertz quantum cascade laser are found to be consistent with experiment.
