Innovative high-gain optically pumped far-infrared laser

July 2016 | Applied Optics | Paper

A new optically pumped far-infrared (FIR) laser with separate pump beam reflector and FIR output coupler has been developed. The new design greatly simplifies the tuning of the laser and enables the optimization of the pump beam absorption without affecting the laser alignment.
