Paper Abstract

In this article we present the research on optoelectronic system for stand-off detection of alcohol vapours in moving cars. The idea of using commercially available cascade lasers was presented. Special attention was paid to the optical characteristics of the car windowpanes. It was shown that using 3.45 μm and 3.59 μm wavelengths the alcohol vapours inside a car can be successfully detected even for cars with different windows
