Abstract
Infrared countermeasure and standoff chemical detection applications require a light source with high power output, good beam quality, and a wide tuning range. There are a limited number of viable mid-infrared (3-5 micron wavelength) solutions that can provide these features in a compact and power scalable architecture. In this proposal, a single chip solution is given which promises high power output (multi-Watt), a compact, rugged nature, and continuous frequency tuning (no-mode hops) over a wide range (>400 cm-1). The basic technology relies on new multi-section high power quantum cascade laser technology.
