Abstract: We provide an overview of recent developments of quantum cascade lasers (QCLs), from the mid-infrared (mid-IR) to the far-IR (THz) range, with a special focus on their metrological-grade applications in a number of fields. A special emphasis on the physics of the QCLs allows underlining peculiar effects and device features recently unveiled that pave the way to novel demanding photonics applications.
