For several applications compact light sources are requested providing two stabilised wavelengths with a narrow linewidth. Applications are shifted excitation Raman difference spectroscopy (SERDS) which separates the Raman lines from disturbing background signals such as ambient daylight or fluorescence or concentration measurements using absorption spectroscopy. Moreover, two slightly different wavelengths are needed for the difference frequency generation into THz radiation. Beside the narrowing and stabilization of the emission wavelength using an internal grating, heater elements above the implemented grating can be used to adjust the spectral distance to meet the demands for the above-mentioned applications.
