Abstract:We use Fourier transform spectrometers based on mid-infrared frequency combs to measure and analyze broadband spectra of molecules of environmental importance in the two water windows around 3.3 $\mu$m and 7.8 $\mu$m. Both comb sources are based on difference frequency generation (DFG) using signal and pump waves derived from a single femtosecond laser, and are therefore inherently carrier-envelope-offset-free, which simplifies their frequency stabilization [1,2]. We use the sub-nominal sampling-interleaving method to measure spectra with resolution limited by the comb-mode linewidth [3,4]. At 3.3 $\mu$m, we measured high-resolution spectra of multiple absorption bands of two halogenated volatile organic compounds, methyl iodide, CH$_3$I [5], and dibromomethane, CH$_2$Br$_2$. We assigned the $\nu$$_4$ band of CH$_3$I with improved accuracy compared to previous work based on FTIR measurements [6]. At 7.8 $\mu$m, we measured the spectrum of the $\nu$$_1$ band of $^{14}$N$_2$$^{16}$O and retrieved line center frequencies with precision of the order of 100 kHz [7], in excellent agreement with previous high-accuracy measurement using a comb-referenced continuous wave quantum cascade laser [8].
