Carbon dioxide (CO2) measurements are of interest to the aviation industry because of the need to reduce net CO2 emission from aero (“jet”) engines  as well as for engine diagnostics. Chemical Species Tomography (CST) is a technique that uses an optical source for multi-path integrated absorption measurements and from those calculates a 2-dimensional image of target gas concentration . In FLITES , we target CST of CO2 in aero-engine exhaust plumes with diameter up to ~ 1.4 m at wavelengths around 2 μm. Typically, single-path absorption measurements are carried out using distributed feedback (DFB) diode lasers with powers of ~2 mW. For CST, however, it would be necessary to use over one hundred separate paths, and thus laser sources, to achieve adequate spatial and temporal resolution. It is essential that a single CST-capable laser source, with total power above 1 W, is developed and the light distributed into the individual paths using optical fibre components.
