Time-domain absorption spectroscopy was demonstrated using a wideband, rapid wavelength-tunable, narrow-linewidth source based on an Er-doped ultrashort pulse fiber laser system. The spectrum of the Raman-shifted ultrashort soliton pulse was compressed using a comb-profile dispersion increasing fiber. Rapid wavelength sweeping was demonstrated using an electro-optical intensity modulator. The absorption spectrum of CH2Cl2 liquid at 1625–1780 nm was observed in a 10 μs time-domain measurement.
