Since their inception, lasers have found widespread application in spectroscopy. In contrast to Raman and Brillouin spectroscopy, absorption spectroscopy depends on a knowledge of the absolute wavelength of the absorbed laser radiation. The advent of narrowband CW lasers had made in increasingly difficult to rely on a few characteristic molecular absorption lines for wavelength calibration using interpolative techniques.
