Abstract

Using the external cavity spectroscopy method, we have observed the saturated absorption spectrum of the P(16) line of the v<TEX>$_1$</TEX>+v<TEX>$_3$</TEX> band of <TEX>$^{13}C<TEX>$_2$</TEX>H<TEX>$_2$</TEX>$</TEX>. The frequency of a laser has been stabilized to the saturated absorption spectrum. The relative contrast of the saturation spectrum is about 7% with respect to the linear absorption and the linewidth is about 1.8 MHz. The frequency fluctuation of the stabilized LD is about <TEX>$\pm$</TEX> 20 KHz for a sampling time of 100 ms.
