Spin-polarized intersubband lasers based on optically pumped type-II antimonide quantum wells in a magnetic field are proposed. Complete discretization of the electron energy spectrum is predicted to extend the electron lifetime considerably. Continuous-wave room-temperature operation is projected for both interband and intersubband pumping configurations lasing at λ=16–24 μm. Furthermore, the parasitic capacitances associated with electrical injection are eliminated, and the large differential gain and fast intrinsic time scale should give modulation bandwidths in excess of 100 GHz. © 1999 American Institute of Physics.
