Paper Abstract

The problem of chemical and biological sensing, i.e., identification of components of various media and measuring their concentrations, is of extreme importance in science, technology, medicine, environmental monitoring, etc. Principally, the problem could be solved by means of purely optical methods, particularly, tunable diode laser spectroscopy [1]. Due to the spectral resolution by an order or two of magnitude higher than Doppler width of spectral lines, it provides ideal selectivity and suitable sensitivity in gas sensing. However, such techniques require bulk, expensive laboratory equipment and qualified personnel. This results in a very high cost of analysis and makes the method unsuitable from the commercial standpoint
