Modeling Carrier Transport of Quantum Cascade Lasers
Curtis R. Menyuk and Muhammad A. Talukder, Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering

In this project we model the carrier transport of quantum cascade lasers taking into account both coherent tunneling mechanisms and non-coherent scattering mechanisms. We simulate the distribution in all the levels in 1.5 period of the actual structure. Quantum kinetic density matrix equations are written with periodic boundary conditions so that translational symmetry is retained.
