Stabilized, Integrated, Far-Infrared Laser System for NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center

Authors:
Eric R. Mueller, Joel Fontanella, Robert Henschke
Abstract:
DeMaria ElectroOptics Systems (DEOS) has delivered a highly-integrated, turn-key, Far-Infrared laser system to NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center, as a precursor for a system for SOFIA. This system has a number of unique features including: a permanently sealed-off 100W-class pump laser, an absolute heterodyne frequency lock for the pump laser, a folded extended-service sealed-off FIR laser, all electro-optics integrated within a compact easily transported housing, and a GUI controller. The absolute frequency lock not only simplifies the automated tune-up algorithms, but also improves the day-to-day absolute frequency reproducibility of the FIR output. This laser system is designed to be an instrument that can be successfully operated without extensive knowledge on the part of the user. The specifications, design, and performance results will be presented here.
