In this work we investigate experimentally and theoretically the feasibility to enhance the nonradiative lifetime of the upper heavy hole state in Si/SiGe quantum cascade (QC) structures within a diagonal transition design. The problem of fast nonradiative optical phonon scattering makes it impossible to achieve population inversion with recently demonstrated Si/SiGe QC mid-infrared emitter ...
