Abstract

Applying the concept of binary superimposed gratings, widely tunable single-mode laser diodes suitable for multispecies gas detection in the 1.8μm wavelength range could be manufactured on InAs/InGaAs quantum dash-in-a-well material. A discrete wavelength tuning range of 21nm as well as continuous tuning over 0.8nm are demonstrated. Water and hydrogen chloride could be detected at absorption lines 13nm apart.
