Abstract
In this paper we study signal amplitude in Chirp-modulated Chirped Laser Dispersion Spectroscopy (CM-CLaDS). CLaDS is a laser-based spectroscopic technique for molecular sensing that uses heterodyne detection to measure optical dispersion caused by molecular transitions. With baseline-free nature and high-immunity to optical power fluctuations CLaDS is well suited to long distance remote, open-path monitoring and stand-off chemical detection. In this work we analyze CM-CLaDS performance. We show that for certain conditions using proper modulation waveform can provide increase in the signal amplitude with respect to previously presented configurations.
