We report new approaches for signal generation in Chirped Laser Dispersion Spectroscopy (CLaDS). Two optical arrangements based on electro-optical modulators significantly reduce CLaDS system complexity and enable optimum performance when applied to detection of GHz-wide molecular transitions. Proof-of-principle experiments in the near-infrared spectral range are presented and potential strategies for application in the mid-infrared are discussed.
