7 February 2007 Reliable operation of 785 nm DFB diode lasers for rapid Raman spectroscopy
Author Affiliations +
Experimental results on RW and BA DFB lasers emitting at 785 nm suitable for Raman spectroscopy are presented. Optical spectra of the RW DFB laser reveal single mode operation with a side-mode suppression ratio of more than 45 dB at optical output powers up to 163 mW. A reliable operation of more than 8800 h of these devices is demonstrated. Within a spectral width of 0.6 nm, more than 99.9% of 1.1 W optical power of the BA DFB laser emitting at 785 nm are included. Raman measurements with RW and BA DFB lasers as excitation light sources and polystyrene as a test sample are presented. At an output power of 1.1 W of the BA device the integration time for the Raman measurement could be reduced to 50 ms.
