Paper Abstract

A new analytical technique, named fragmentary spectrum registration (FSR), with use of acousto-optical spectrometers (AOS’s) is proposed and studied. It is based on the method of differential optical absorption spectroscopy (DOAS) and the unique AOS feature of fast (10 μs) random spectral access (RSA). The technique is the most efficient for objects exhibiting sparse optical spectra. The technique permits a substantial (up to 100 times) reduction of detection time in comparison with the record time of total spectrum and provides the decrease of inaccuracy of quantitative analysis of multicomponent mixtures containing substances with similar spectral features. The results of numerical simulation with use of real spectra detected by the trace gas monitoring system GAOS based on AOS are presented and discussed. The experimental results demonstrate the capabilities of the FSR-technique for the huge reduction of the measurement time or for the decrease of measurement error (up to 2.5 times) when the total measurement time is fixed while concentrations being varied from the environment background up to industrial emissions level.
