Paper Abstract

The basic principles of the fiber-circled cavity ring-down spectroscopy were described. A new gas measurement system based on the fiber-circled cavity ring-down spectroscopy using continuous wave (CW) laser was designed and constructed. And the precise research about the principles and functions of the main devices was made during the designing process. Through analyzing the change of loss before and after filling H2S gas, know that the insertion loss cannot exceed 0.01dB.Because gain fluctuation of erbium doped fiber amplifier(EDFA) seriously influences measurement accuracy, a method which stabilizes the gain of EDFA was introduced, and the change of gain stability characteristics was compared. After adding the feedback loop, the gain changes within 0.01dB, and the measuring precision is 1ppm. The decay characteristics of H2S gas with different concentrations and the empty cavity at different loss levels were obtained. From the experiment results, as the gas concentration increased, the decay time declined. Influencing factors on measurement precision were analyzed, and a new method for the high accuracy gas concentration in-situ measurement was proposed.
