The design and implementation of a short-wavelength quantum-cascade laser based on the strain-compensated In0.73Ga0.27AsIn0.55Al0.45AsAlAs heterosystem on InP is described. Lasers with a reduced level of doping in the active region require a larger bias voltage and emit at shorter wavelength; the emission wavelength is 3.05 μm at T≈80 K. The lasers operate up to T≈150 K and electroluminescence persists up to room temperature, where the peak position is close to 3.3 μm. The short-wavelength limit of such lasers is evaluated based on the dependence of their maximum operation temperatures and on the probable energies of the indirect valleys in the active region.
