Abstract

The free-space mid-infrared link for transmission of multimedia data using quantum cascade (QC) lasers was discussed. It was found that to measure the advantage of the longer wavelength relative to the collinearly propagating near-infrared beam, both intensities were monitored in parallel. The analysis showed that QC laser link reached nearly 70% of its optimal value when the intensity of the near-IR link was below the detection limit.
