Abstract
We have fabricated single-frequency diode lasers from a number of III-V semiconducting compounds. These diode lasers were specifically designed for laser absorption spectroscopy. Their emission wavelengths span the internal of 0.76 to 2.7 micrometers . Water vapor, CO, CO2, NH3, CH4 HF, and O2 have been detected using them. After a brief review of their physical structure and principles of operation, we present representative output characteristics of these lasers, along with a discussion of several important applications.
