We model a new THz laser device structure based on a semiconductor quantum dot (QD) gain medium, where the lasing occurs through discrete conduction states. An ensemble of QDs is selectively placed in a high quality cavity, called a microdisk, which is resonant with an intersublevel QD transition. We simulate the rate equations governing lasing and discuss a variety of processes affecting lasing including nonradiative recombination and the ground state decay rate.
