    Abstract

    A rapidly swept optical cavity and a cw single-mode tunable diode laser (TDL) were used to record high-resolution cavity ringdown laser absorption spectroscopy (CRDS) of weak combination bands. This approach simplifies cw-CRDS by eliminating the need for a fast optical switch or for cavity locking. It depends on understanding the dynamic response and characteristing ringing effects associated with the build-up and decay or radiation in a high-finesse optical cavity as its length is scanned piezoelectrically by an applied linear voltage ramp.
