University Paris Sud (UPSud), France

The Institut d’Electronique Fondamentale (IEF) is located within the University Paris Sud (UPSud). The research carried out at the PSUD focuses on optoelectronics and photonics, nano-structures, and microelectronic components. IEF/UPS has a long track record on intersubband devices science and technology in various material systems. It will bring into the proposal its expertise on the development of state-or-the-art THz QCL sources. Among the recent achievements most relevant for this project, are: the demonstration of surface-emitting photonic-crystal THz lasers (2008); the optimization of the beam-emission properties of surface-emitting THz QC lasers (2010); novel techniques for high-power surface extraction (2012 and 2013); and advances in mid-IR/THz polaritonics (2013, 2014). The latest results are especially relevant to this proposal.
