Abstract

Phase shift between the injection current and amplitude modulation due to the characteristics of diode lasers is discussed in this paper. Phase shift has no apparent regularity, but it has an obvious effect on measurement results, especially for high-precision measurement. A new method is proposed to suppress the influence of this phase shift. Water vapor is chosen as the target gas for experiment in this paper. A new detection system with the new method applied is presented and shows much better performance than the traditional wavelength modulation spectroscopy detection system. Phase shift fluctuation between the injection current and amplitude modulation is suppressed from 0.72 deg to 0.07 deg; accuracy is improved from 0.88 ppm to 0.16 ppm.
