Abstract

We performed saturated absorption spectroscopy of acetylene ( C 2 H 2 ) ν 1 + ν 3 band transitions with an optical nanofiber (ONF). Owing to high-intensity light around the ONF, we observed a Lamb dip at relatively low-power laser ( 10 mW ) without a cavity. Our results showed that the simple ONF spectrometer is advantageous for performing saturation absorption spectroscopy and serves as a practical low-cost wavelength reference in the optical fiber communication band.
