Abstract

We have developed a 3.4 μ m spectrometer for sub-Doppler resolution molecular absorption spectroscopy. The source is based on the difference frequency generation using a 1.06 μ m Nd:YAG laser, a 1.55 μ m distributed-feedback laser diode, and a ridge waveguide periodically poled lithium niobate with a conversion efficiency of 9%/W. The generated radiation has a power level of about 300 μ W , a linewidth of less than 100 kHz, and a continuous tuning range over 10 cm 1 . The spectrometer allows us to observe six saturated absorption lines of C 12 H 4 with 0.3–0.4 MHz width and 1.3%–1.7% depth relative to the corresponding linear absorption lines.
