The influence of injector doping concentration Ninj on the performance of InP-based quantum-cascade (QC) lasers is investigated for devices emitting around 9.2-mum wavelength and injector doping concentrations between 1times1017 cm-3 and 3times1017 cm-3. The threshold current density, the dynamic range, the maximum emitted output power as well as the maximum operating temperature are found to increase with increasing N inj. All in all, there exists no optimal value of Ninj per se. In fact, the injector doping concentration has to be adjusted individually depending whether emphasis is placed on obtaining low threshold current densities or on high-power operation
