Patent US 20090007950 (US Patent Office, Jan. 08 2009)
A method for the environment heat conversion in coherent electromagnetic energy by a superradiant quantum decay and a thermal excitation of a system of electrons is disclosed. A semiconductor device is also disclosed comprising a system of n-i-p-n transistors, a double array of quantum dots on the two sides of the thin i-layer of the n-i emitter, a system of intermediate n and p layers separating the active quantum region from the n and respectively p regions by potential barriers, a metal front electrode, a heat absorber in intimate contact with this electrode, a semitransparent rear electrode forming with the front electrode a Fabry-Perot resonator tuned with the electron quantum transition frequency through the i-layer, and an output semitransparent mirror of the same transparency as the transparency of the rear electrode, by this forming with the rear electrode a total transmission Fabry-Perot resonator.
