Abstract:

The report discusses the properties of Xenon 3.5 micrometer superradiant radiation sources with emphasis on frequency and intensity stability, in order to determine the feasibility of their use as a path-monitoring reference for Fourier spectroscopy. Irregular intensity fluctuations due to the interaction of radiation reflected from an interferometer were eliminated by means of an infrared isolator using the Faraday rotation in Yttrium Iron Garnet. A few important aspects of superradiant radiation courses and their applications, which are desireable for future research, are described. Author
