Title: Monolithically integrated infrared transceiver

Abstract

A Schottky diode is monolithically integrated into the core of an infrared semiconductor laser (e.g., a quantum cascade laser) to create a heterodyned infrared transceiver. The internal mode field of the infrared semiconductor laser couples to an embedded Schottky diode and can mix the infrared fields to generate a response at the difference frequency.
