Title: Mode matching method for absorption spectroscopy systems

Abstract

Systems and methods for controlling optical feedback in an optical system having a radiation source optically coupled via mode matching optics with a resonant optical cavity. The cavity includes at least two cavity mirrors, one of which is a cavity coupling mirror, and has a plurality of optical resonance cavity modes, wherein the radiation source emits a beam of continuous wave radiation and is capable of being scanned whereby a mean optical frequency of the continuous wave radiation beam is adjustable over a range of frequencies, wherein the radiation source is responsive to optical feedback radiation emerging from the cavity, and wherein the mode matching optics couples the beam of continuous wave radiation to the cavity via the cavity coupling mirror. The radiation source and the mode matching optics are aligned so that a mode fill ratio is reduced relative to a maximum mode fill ratio, wherein for the maximum mode-fill ratio the laser beam is coupled with a fundamental cavity mode.
