Abstract

The tone-burst color-center-laser spectroscopy technique is developed further by using a specially designed CdTe phase modulator. A balanced detector scheme permits lower burst frequencies without a decrease in sensitivity. The detection limit achieved is 0.01% absorption as determined by measurements on 15N16O in natural abundance.
