Abstract
Lead-salt tunable diode lasers (TDLs) have been used extensively in atmospheric trace gas measurement applications associated with global environmental studies. Recent development work in lead- salt TDL technology and support components relevant to atmospheric monitoring and related applications will be described. Specific topics include (1) progress toward molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) grown buried heterostructure lasers for long wavelength operation, (2) high temperature CW operation and packaging suitable for thermoelectric cooling, (3) miniaturized packaging for multiple wavelength arrays with individually controllable elements and design concepts for a fully automated, sequential multiple wavelength source assembly, and (4) design considerations and performance test results for a high-stability laser source dewar for field applications.
