A feasibility study of open-path methane detection at 3.4 μm using chirped laser dispersion spectroscopy (CLaDS) based on nonlinear differential frequency generation (DFG) laser source is performed. Application of a DFG source based on telecom laser sources and modulators allows mid-infrared CLaDS system to be optimized for measurements of gases at atmospheric conditions for which modulation in the GHz range is required. Excellent agreement between observed CLaDS signals and spectroscopic models has been observed.
