Abstract:

The report describes the design and experimental results observed with a 10.6 micrometer multitraverse 137.5 cm predetection quantum amplifier as a single stage amplifier, and a part of a two-stage amplification scheme. Operating as a single amplifier, an electronic gain of 30 dB has been measured as the second stage of a two-stage series combination, an additional gain of 10 dB is possible over the original 39 dB gain of the 83.5 cm first stage. Sealed-off design features are discussed. Author
