On the basis of the Maxwell-Bloch equations, we demonstrate theoretically and numerically that the pulsed superradiant lasing is possible in the quantum-dot heterostructures under continuous-wave (CW) optical pumping if the quantum-dot coherence lifetime exceeds the photon lifetime in a laser cavity [1, 2]. We analyze/compare in detail and select the most promising multilayered well-dot and sub-monolayer quantum-dot heterostructures which could be used as the active media, and design for them the proper low-Q combined Fabry-Perot cavities with distributed feedback which will select the superradiant modes.
