Abstract: Efficient mid-IR interband cascade (IC) lasers are developed based on 111-V semiconductor materials to cover wavelength range from 2.7 to 5.6 μm. These IC lasers reuse injected electrons in cascade stages for photon generation with high quantum efficiency to achieve high output powers. Also, IC lasers have low threshold current density with very efficient use of applied voltage, resulting in reduced power consumptions. Single-mode distributed feedback lasers have been made, and integrated into aircraft and balloon instrument which made measurements of CH4 and HCI. In this work, the characteristics of IC lasers and their recent development are reviewed.
