Plasmon-based terahertz emission from quantum well structures.

Growing coherent plasma oscillations ~plasma instability! can be generated in quantum well structures, where a sufficient population inversion is maintained in the carrier distribution by appropriate injection–extraction configurations. The collective response characteristics of such structures have...
