Kurzfassung englisch:
The generation of short pulses with quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) remains challenging to date due to their ultrafast gain dynamics. Here, we report on active mode-locking of mid-infrared QCLs. For the first time we show, that picosecond pulses can be generated also at room-temperature using high-performance QCL material. Mounted epi-up, the QCLs emit a train of pulses as short as a 7ps with an average power of 100mW. The nonlinear autocorrelation shows reveals the famous 8:1 ratio, which proves unambiguously that the QCL operates in the mode-locked regime. This result is further verified using the beatnote spectroscopy technique SWITS.
