Mid-infrared (MIR) spectral region, hereafter defined as the ~3 – 20 μm wavelength range, hosts particular scientific and technological interests. Many molecules have strong and rich spectral fingerprints in this MIR region, therefore, MIR photonic and nanophotonic devices are potentially very promising for a breath of applications such as environmental and bio-chemical sensing, defense and security, industrial control, and medicine, etc. However, MIR remains a far from mature region, with a dearth in both passive and active components. The latter, including sources, modulators and photodetectors, often require materials with small enough direct bandgap, which, unfortunately, only exists in very few materials.
In this talk, I am going to present the working principles and our achievements of MIR and THz quantum cascade laser, which is a semiconductor based electrical pumping source. Then I am going to present our recent research in applying 2D materials for applications in the MIR regime, particularly room temperature broadband photodetectors [Nature Communication, 9:1545, 2018, Nature Communication, 9, 4299, 2018 ]. In the end, I am also going to present how we achieve ultraconfined MIR surface phonon polariton devices in dichalcogenide 2D materials [Nature Communications, 9, 1726, 2018]. I will also talk about the applications of 2D materials in the Terahertz regimes.
