The design, realization and testing of the laser sources have been provided by the Technische Universität Muenchen, in cooperation with the local Walter Schottky Institut.
The characterization of the lasers, in terms of emitting power, emission wavelenght and tunability as a function of temperature and voltage, have been performed to provide further inputs for the following designs. The idea has been to provide an iterative design-testing procedure to achieve the required performances.
The project ended at the end of 2007. It is now followed by a new project, CNL-muH, aiming to study the optical coupling of the laser emission with the target.
