Abstract

A precision laser spectrometer for the detection of C O 2 isotopes is reported. The spectrometer measures the fundamental absorption signatures of C 13 and C 12 isotopes in C O 2 at 4.32 μ m using a tunable mid-IR laser source based on difference-frequency generation. The spectrometer attains a precision of up to 0.02 for 150 s of averaging. An overall accuracy of 0.05 was obtained when sampling various calibrated reference gases.
