A new concept is presented for realizing midwave-infrared vertical- cavity lasers based on an interband-resonant-tunneling-diode (I-RTD). Model equations are derived in terms of material and structure parameters for predicting the output power in an I-RTD laser device constructed of InAs/AlGaSb layers. Simulation made for midwave- infrared lasers suggest that the radiation output density power in this I-RTD laser can be achieved of the order of 40 W/cm2.
