Abstract: Quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) are becoming a key tool in several advanced experiments in the field of precision molecular spectroscopy and absolute frequency metrology. In view of this, a thorough control of their emission properties must be achieved, including a narrow linewidth as well as a high frequency-stability combined with referencing to a primary standard. Here, we give a review on recent developments and next perspectives in this scope, with particular regard to the use of QCLs in fundamental physics spectroscopic searches.
