Abstract
An optimized light source for the 45 µm wavelength region with a continuous-wave output power of 2 mW at ambient temperature is introduced. The device is based on a narrow-gap lead salt semiconductor chip, which is optically pumped by a standard high-power diode laser array. Surface patterning is employed and leads to an up to sixfold increase in out-coupling efficiency compared to untreated chip surfaces. A model is presented that explains this enhancement of the light extraction. Output efficiencies of 4×104 are achieved.
