Far-Infrared P-Ge Laser With Variable Length Cavity
Far infrared; Laser resonator; Semiconductor laser; Terahertz; Tunable laser
Operation of a far-infrared (1.5-4.2 THz) p-Ge laser in an open quasi-optical resonator is demonstrated. This contrasts with previous designs where mirrors were fixed to surfaces of the active crystal. Enhanced stability and tuning of the laser cavity length are demonstrated, which are steps toward continuous tunability without mode-hops. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
