QUANTUM CASCADE LASERS

Research Front Map

As part of this bimonthly processing, ScienceWatch.com selects the Research Fronts with the largest absolute increase in size in each of the 22 major fields covered by Essential Science IndicatorsSM from Clarivate Analytics. The size of a research front is determined by the number of core papers it contains. This Research Front titled "QUANTUM CASCADE LASERS" from the field of Physics, was selected for mapping from the list of Top Topics for June 2011 (the first bimonthly period of 2011; March 2005-February 28, 2011 [sliding 6-year period]). The map is a diagrammatic representation of the 25 core papers comprising the front in Physics.

Each circle represents a highly cited paper whose bibliographic information is displayed when the user clicks on the circle. The solid lines between circles represent the strongest co-citation links for each paper (that is, indicating that the papers are frequently cited together); weaker links are indicated by dashed lines. Papers close to each other on the map are generally more highly co-cited. The most recent paper(s) are indicated in pink.
