48) (the beat signal between the two sidebands is negligible), and thus their strengths are proportional to the geometric mean of the intensity of each side sideband and the carrier. Finally the beat signal is measured by the phase-sensitive detection at the modulation frequency to infer the information of the absorption feature. Note that the in-phase (cosω t ) component of the beat signal is proportional to the difference in loss experienced by the two sidebands, whereas the quadrature ( sin ω t ) component is proportional to the difference between the phase shift experienced by the carrier and the average of the phase shifts experienced by the sidebands.

The condition at which optical gain rather than absorption is achieved, in semiconductor lasers. 2 Illustration of the band edges of a homojunction diode (a) at equilibrium and (b) under forward bias. (b) shows that the electron and hole quasi-Fermi levels EFh and EFe approximately continue into the depletion region and decrease into the N and P regions. 3 sketches band-to-band stimulated transitions. , one electron at state 1 in the valence band absorbs one photon and is elevated to some state 2 in the conduction band.

For standard modulation spectroscopy that bases its detection on the laser wavelength modulation, this intensity modulation leads to an asymmetric signal shape and is also a source of extra noise. Therefore, it is deleterious and called residual intensity modulation. But the modulation technique for broadband absorption, introduced at the end of chapter 2, relies on this intensity modulation. , the current modulation, at low frequencies. It will tend to resonate around the relaxation resonance frequency depending on the damping factor.
