Riassunto:  The broadband electroluminescence of a quantum cascade device based on a multi-color active region covering the wavelengths 5.9µm-7.2µm was measured. Anti-reflection coatings were applied on both cleaved facets to remove the Fabry-Pérot cavity and prevent the device from lasing. This allows the latter to be studied either as a superluminescent diode or a single-pass amplifier in order to determine its suitability as a source for low speckle imaging applications. At 243 K, the amplified spontaneous emission has a peak power of 38µW that agrees well with a simple model of spontaneous emission intensity. The light of a similar structure could be modulated up to 1 GHz, limited by the RC constant of the device. The peak gain was measured from high-resolution luminescence spectra and determined to be 6.3 cm-1, corresponding to a single-pass gain of 1.89.
