Paper Abstract

The main requirements for in situ trace gas analysis, process and air pollution monitoring are specifity, high time resolution, and high sensitivity. Tunable diode lasers absorption spectroscopy is increasingly being used to measure trace gas concentrations down to low ppbv- levels (10-9 volume mixing ratio). The applications of high frequency modulation (FM) schemes can further improve sensitivity and detection speed of modern instrumentation. In this paper the FM technique will be reviewed with respect to current limitations of tunable diode laser spectroscopy. Recent investigations and findings will be described with emphasis on the work done in our laboratory and novel approaches will be discussed. Some applications related to quality control and ISO calibration as well as fast and high sensitivity measurement challenges will be discussed.
