Paper Abstract

We constructed a Herriott multipass cell with one piezo driven mirror to reduce Fabry-Perot- interference fringes in a pulsed infrared tunable diode laser spectrometer. The applicability of the cell is demonstrated by measuring weak lines in the (nu) 3-band of NO2 with a pulsed tunable diode laser spectrometer. The reduction of the fringes is discussed in dependence to the frequency of laser excitation, the frequency of the piezo-element, and the elongation of the piezo driven mirror. The multipass cell should become a part of a high sensitive TDL spectrometer for environmental research.
