Paper Abstract

We report on the highly coherent modeless broadband continuous wave operation of a semiconductor vertical-external cavity-surface-emitting laser. Its design is based on a frequency-shifted-feedback scheme provided by an acousto-optic frequency shifter inserted into the cavity. Chirping the optical wave inside the cavity leads to the elimination of the traditional spectral resonances occurring in usual laser cavities, leading to a wideband (>330GHz here) continuous spectrum. The light is of high coherence concerning the transverse mode and the polarisation state, as well as in the time domain (time coherence ≈ 19μs, like a 1MHz DFB) in spite of its wideband emission.
