Paper Abstract

The design and the main features of the new double pendulum type michelson interferometer (DPI) by Kayser-Threde are presented. The advantages of this spectrometer in comparison to conventional Fourier spectrometers are discussed. The DPI is compact in design, mobile, insensitive to vibrations and temperature changes and, thus, well adapted to field measurements. The spectrometer was applied to emission as well as immission measurements of air pollutants. Several molecules could be identified and their concentrations could be estimated. The detection limit of the DPI yields 15 - 60 ppm depending on the analyzed gas for emission measurements, 6 - 84 ppb for immission measurements.
