Abstract

The noise properties of two multi-heterodyne spectrometers based on multi-mode semiconductor lasers (QCLs and ICLs) are investigated to determine their detection performance limitations. Both laser technologies provide well-defined multi-heterodyne beat-note structures suitable for spectroscopic measurements.
