After a brief introduction to wavelet theory, this paper discusses the critical parameters to be considered in wavelet denoising for infrared laser spectroscopy. In particular, it is shown that measurement dispersion as well as sensibility can be dramatically improved when using wavelet denoising for gas detection by infrared laser absorption spectroscopy.
