Huebers, H. - W., Pavlov, S., Semenov, A., Köhler, R., Mahler, L., Tredicucci, A., et al. (2005). Terahertz quantum cascade laser as local oscillator in a heterodyne receiver. Optics Express, 13(15), 5890–5896.
Abstract: Terahertz quantum cascade lasers have been investigated with respect to their performance as a local oscillator in a heterodyne receiver. The beam profile has been measured and transformed in to a close to Gaussian profile resulting in a good matching between the field patterns of the quantum cascade laser and the antenna of a superconducting hot electron bolometric mixer. Noise temperature measurements with the hot electron bolometer and a 2.5 THz quantum cascade laser yielded the same result as with a gas laser as local oscillator.
