Abstract
Thanks to their ultrafast gain dynamics, a unique feature among semiconductor lasers, quantum cascade lasers exhibit strong coherent oscillations of the population inversion with concomitant formation of mode skipping frequency combs (harmonic state) and time dependent spatial hole burning leading to new microwave transmitters (laser-radios). Finally we show that the frequency comb formation in QCLs obeys a simple variational principle, that relies on the maximization of the laser output power.
