Abstract

We present a hybrid microintegrated diode laser module developed for iodine spectroscopy on board a sounding rocket. The laser module is based on a master-oscillator-power-amplifier concept: an extended cavity diode laser serves as the master oscillator, and a ridge-waveguide semiconductor optical amplifier provides the power boost. The module’s form factor and mass correspond to $ 12.5 \times 7.5 \times 2.3\, {{\rm cm}^3} $ and 750 g, respectively. With an electrical power of 3.75 W supplied to the module, 570 mW of optical power is provided out of a polarization maintaining optical fiber at 1064.490 nm with a technical linewidth of 13 kHz (55 kHz) at a 1 ms (10 ms) time scale. The laser module has successfully passed vibration tests at a level of $ 8.8 \, {{g}_{_{\rm RMS}}} $. A nominally identical module has recently been used to demonstrate, for the first time, precision iodine spectroscopy in space.
