An overview of recent progress in p-Si/SiGe quantum well cascade structures intended for THz quantum cascade lasers is presented. Specific features of this system, which make it distinct from the more conventional GaAs/AlGaAs quantum cascades, are discussed both in terms of the physics involved and in terms of material issues.
