Abstract

We report on the narrowing of a room-temperature mid-IR quantum cascade laser by frequency locking it to a CO2 sub-Doppler transition obtained by polarization spectroscopy. A locking bandwidth of 250 kHz has been achieved. The laser linewidth is narrowed by more than two orders of magnitude below 1 kHz, and its absolute frequency is stabilized at the same level.
