An overview of research and development of an on-chip laser systems for use in gas sensing applications will be given. Novel geometry, widely tunable laser sources in a form of monolithic photonic integrated circuits realized using generic integration technologies will be presented. Feasibility of such lasers operating either in 1.5µm and 2µm wavelength bands for gas sensing will be demonstrated with experimental results obtained in absorption measurements of acetylene and carbon dioxide.
