Micro-optics is usually associated with planar waveguides or integrated optical circuits. In this case the propagation of light is restricted to one or two dimensions, and the three-dimensional nature of light propagation is disregarded. We present a method of fabricating three-dimensional micro-optical components by the so-called LIGA process, a(More)
Single-frequency operation of a 10.4-mum room-temperature multimode quantum-cascade laser was achieved by use of a 17-mm short Littrow-type external-cavity configuration. The spectral intensity of the external-cavity laser was increased as much as 20-fold compared with that of a multimode quantum-cascade laser without an external cavity. A single-frequency(More)
A novel all-electrical method of frequency noise reduction in quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) is proposed. Electrical current through the laser was continuously adjusted to compensate for fluctuations of the laser internal resistance, which led to an active stabilization of the optical emission frequency. A reduction of the linewidth from 1.7 MHz in the(More)
GaN is a wide-bandgap semiconductor with still unexplored capabilities for ultraviolet detection. To exploit GaN properties better for ultraviolet detection, a metal-semiconductor-metal-type photodetector structure was designed and manufactured on a 2.2 microm thin GaN membrane fabricated by micromachining techniques. As a result, a very low dark current(More)
A high-power external cavity diode laser (ECDL) system with narrowband emission is presented. The system is based on a commercially available high-power GaN laser diode. For the ECDL, a maximum optical output power of 400 mW in continuous-wave operation with narrowband emission is achieved. Longitudinal mode selection is realized by using a surface(More)
We demonstrate a compact system for single-pass frequency doubling of high-power GaN diode laser radiation. The deep UV laser light at 222.5 nm is generated in a β-BaB2O4 (BBO) crystal. A high-power GaN external cavity diode laser (ECDL) system in Littrow configuration with narrowband emission at 445 nm is used as pump source. At a pump power of 680 mW, a(More)
An extension of the well-known technique for spectral phase interferometry for direct electric-field reconstruction (SPIDER) has been developed that permits the reconstruction of the spectral amplitude and the spectral phase of ultrashort laser pulses from the acquisition of only one spectrum. Temporal intensity and temporal phase can therefore easily be(More)
We characterized the dual wavelength operation of a distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) quantum cascade laser (QCL) operating at 4.5 μm using two independent optical frequency discriminators. The QCL emits up to 150 mW fairly evenly distributed between two adjacent Fabry-Perot modes separated by ≈11.6 GHz. We show a strong correlation between the(More)
