The quantum cascade laser is a powerful, narrow linewidth, and continuous wave source of terahertz radiation. The authors have implemented a distributed feedback device in a spectrometer for high-resolution gas phase spectroscopy. Amplitude as well as frequency modulation schemes have been realized. The absolute frequency was determined by mixing the radiation from the quantum cascade laser with that from a gas laser. The pressure broadening and the pressure shift of a rotational transition of methanol at 2.519 THz were measured in order to demonstrate the performance of the spectrometer.
