Abstract

We report a study of optical switching in Cd0.23Hg0.77Te etalons at room temperature by two-photon excitation at 10.6µm. We compare experimental results of both fast switching using a short-cavity TEA CO2 laser (FWHM = 30ns) and quasi-CW optical bistability using a hybrid TEA CO2 laser (FWHM = 1.75µm), with a computer model. © 1985.
