Abstract

Absorption lines of methane in the 2ν3 band centered at 1650 nm were measured with a free-running mode-locked dual-comb laser based on a single erbium-doped glass chip. The laser’s spectra were broadened up to 1670 nm using amplifiers and highly nonlinear fiber. A comb was used to interrogate the complex transmission spectrum of a methane-filled gas cell with an optical point spacing of 968 MHz and an interferogram (IGM) rate of 27 kHz to yield absorption lines of the R and Q branches. A 1.28 s sequence of IGMs was measured and phase-corrected using a self-sufficient correction algorithm seeded only by the IGMs. The associated transmission spectrum was then compared to HITRAN yielding residuals limited by photodetector nonlinearity.
