Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We present a novel multi-pass optical cavity with partially-chaotic ray dynamics. For a centimeter-size device, our experimental measurements confirm meter-scale optical path lengths supported by the cavity, suggesting future applications in trace gas detection.
