Abstract

Heterodyne difference frequency measurements between a 13CO2 laser and a diode laser tuned (and in most cases locked) to the peaks of OCS absorption lines have been used to improve frequency calibration tables in the 860-cm−1 region by factors of 20–50. Measurements have been made on the vibrational transitions 1000–0000, 1110–0110, and 2000–1000 for OCS. The measurements on the 1000–0000 and 2000–1000 transitions are also used to provide frequency calibration tables for the 2000–0000 band of OCS near 1700 cm−1.

Fig. 1

Block diagram of a TDL spectrometer with capabilities for heterodyne frequency measurements with 13CO2 lasers. A kinematically mounted mirror permits the user to select the germanium etalon for wavelength metrology or the heterodyne configuration for frequency metrology. A second mirror mount arrangement permits selection of the appropriate 13CO2 laser.

Fig. 2

Heterodyne beat note between P(52) of the 13CO2 laser and the TDL when locked to R(30) of the O13CS molecule. The center frequency is 516.9 MHz, and the sharp feature is due to the marker oscillator. The 10-cm long spectrum analyzer trace has a 10-MHz/cm dispersion.
