Near infrared diode lasers are attractive for spectroscopic applications due to their good spectral purity and low amplitude noise. They operate at room temperature with single-mode output power of milliwatts, and are adapted to fibre optic technology. Wavelength tunability is achieved using an extended cavity configuration. We report on a system based on high resolution infrared spectrometry in the 1.5-1.6 /spl mu/m region where several gases have overtone or combination absorption bands. In… CONTINUE READING
