LD08 – Modeling of THz Comb Emission in Difference-Frequency Quantum Cascade Lasers

Popp J., Seitner L., Schreiber M., Haider M., Consolino L., Cappelli F., De Natale P., Fujita K., Jirauschek C.

The generation of terahertz (THz) frequency comb emission by intracavity difference frequency generation (DFG) in a mid-infrared (mid-IR) quantum cascade laser (QCL) is a promising alternative to direct THz QCL frequency comb generation. Concerning their room temperature operation capabilities, these devices are well suited for applications in rotational molecular spectroscopy and sensing. In order to […]

LD10 – Effect of Self-Phase Modulation on The Signal Quality of Fourier Domain Mode-Locked Lasers

Aşırım O. E., Huber R., Jirauschek C.

In this paper, the impact of self-phase modulation on the noise performance of Fourier Domain Mode-Locked (FDML) lasers is investigated. It is shown that under a relatively high fiber nonlinearity and/or intracavity signal amplitude, an excess amount of noise generation occurs, which can not only lead to poor signal quality, but also operational instability. Hence, […]

MM03 – Implementation of Partially Reflecting Boundary Conditions in the Generalized Maxwell-Bloch Equations

Schreiber M., Popp J., Seitner L., Haider M., Jirauschek C.

Perfectly matched layer (PML) boundary conditions have been used for several decades for the simulation of open domains within the finite difference time domain (FDTD) method. In this paper, we report on a new PML-based partially reflecting boundary condition for the generalized Maxwell-Bloch equations that enables setting a certain value of reflectance R at the […]
