The quantum cascade laser, operates over an extremely wide wavelength range in the mid-infrared with high output power and low power consumption. A new generation of devices show enhanced wavelength multiplexing and tuning agility capabilities. 150-word Biography: Jérôme Faist was born in Switzerland and obtained his Ph.D. in Physics in 1989 from the Swiss Institute of Technology in Lausanne. He then worked successively at IBM Rueschlikon (89-91) and Bell Laboratories (91-97). He was nominated full professor in the physics institute of the University of Neuchâtel (1997) and then full professor in the ETH Zurich (2007). His key contribution to the development of the quantum cascade laser was recognized by a number of awards that include the IEEE/LEOS William Streifer Award for Scientific Achievement and National Swiss Latsis Prize 2002. His present interests include the development of mid-infrared and terahertz quantum cascade lasers and frequency combs, the physics of strong light-matter coupling in metallic resonators and quantum dots intraband devices.
