Abstract

This paper reviews quantum cascade laser spectroscopy and its applications for trace gas sensing and non-linear optics. The development of pulsed lasers for these applications are discussed focusing on the intra-pulse method. The operation of the quantum cascade laser spectrometer is investigated experimentally and by computer solutions of Maxwell-bloch equations.
