Abstract

A laser absorption spectrometer is described which uses a tunable diode laser and a 1-m multipass White cell to detect NO2 in air with a sensitivity of better than 100 ppt. The modulation techniques employed to achieve this sensitivity are described in detail, and the noise mechanisms, which currently limit the detectable absorption coefficients to ≳10−7 m−1, are examined.
