Block Engineering's Block's laser-based products utilize next generation quantum cascade lasers QCLs and infrared absorption spectroscopy. QCLs were invented and first fabricated at Bell Laboratories in the late '70s by Federico Capasso, Jerome Faist and their colleagues, but their wide use for applications outside the laboratories has only started a few years ago. QCLs are semiconductor devices, which operate differently from conventional semiconductor lasers.
Laser , a device that stimulates atoms or molecules to emit light at particular wavelengths and amplifies that light, typically producing a very narrow beam of radiation. The emission generally covers an extremely limited range of visible, infrared , or ultraviolet wavelengths. Many different types of lasers have been developed, with highly varied characteristics.

Quantum Cascade Lasers QCL are semiconductor lasers that emit in the mid- and long-wave IR bands, and are finding new applications in precision sensing, spectroscopy, medical, and military applications 1. Their wide tuning range and fast response time allow for faster and more precise compact trace element detectors and gas analyzers that are replacing slower and larger FTIR, mass spectroscopy, and photothermal microspectroscopy systems. Since the first operational QCL emitted light in tremendous effort has been put into making them more robust, versatile, and manufacturable. Quantum cascade lasers are used in industrial exhaust sensing, safe-distance explosives detectors, light sources for infrared imaging systems, medical diagnostic breath analyzers, and a variety of other sensing and spectroscopic applications 2. The number of markets for QCLs is growing at an ever-increasing rate as scientists and manufacturers gain more experience with them. This transmission range is useful because of the large number of absorption lines exhibited by common target gases that fall within this band.
Photonic integrated circuits PICs have enabled numerous high performance, energy efficient, and compact technologies for optical communications, sensing, and metrology. One of the biggest challenges in scaling PICs comes from the parasitic reflections that feed light back into the laser source. These reflections increase noise and may cause laser destabilization. To avoid parasitic reflections, expensive and bulky optical isolators have been placed between the laser and the rest of the PIC leading to large increases in device footprint for on-chip integration schemes and significant increases in packaging complexity and cost for lasers co-packaged with passive PICs. This review article reports new findings on epitaxial quantum dot lasers on silicon and studies both theoretically and experimentally the connection between the material properties and the ultra-low reflection sensitivity that is achieved.

A laser diode , LD , injection laser diode ILD , or diode laser is a semiconductor device similar to a light-emitting diode in which a diode pumped directly with electrical current can create lasing conditions at the diode's junction. Driven by voltage, the doped p-n-transition allows for recombination of an electron with a hole. Due to the drop of the electron from a higher energy level to a lower one, radiation, in the form of an emitted photon is generated.
