The use of lasers which emit infra-red radiation and sophisticated detectors of IR radiation is increasing dramatically: they are being used for long-distance fibre-optic communications and remote environmental monitoring and sensing. Thus they are of interest to the telecommunications industry and the military in particular. This book has been designed to bring together what is known on these devices, using an international group of contributors.The schematic diagram of the setup is shown in Figure 6.9. The pulse generator and laser driver were inside an Avtech AVR-4A-PW which is capable of generating high power electrical pulses with fall time of about 5 ns. The quantum cascadeanbsp;...
