A 2.2-Watt continuous wave, continuous tunable, single frequency OPO has been developed in the 3.0-3.8 µm wavelength range to detect molecular trace gasses. The usefulness of the system was demonstrated by determining a detection limit for ethane down to 10 part per trillion for applications within Life Science.
