We have demonstrated the laser-absorption spectrometer system using frequency chirped intensity modulation at 1.57 μm wavelength for measurement of concentration. Using this technique, backscattered laser radiation from different ranges can be discriminated in the frequency domain of the electrical signal. We have reported the discrimination of two signals from the targets with different ranges. It is shown that stable measurements with short time fluctuation corresponding to 4 ppm (rms) were obtained with 32 s measurement intervals. Furthermore, there is qualitative good agreement on, at least, the diurnal changes between the results of the laser absorption spectrometer system and the in-situ sensor.
