Paper Abstract

Quartz enhanced photoacoustic spectroscopy (QEPAS) is an extremely effective tool for the detection and quantification of trace gases, which offers advantages of fast response, high sensitivity and high resolution. In this paper, a gas sensor based on quartz-enhanced photoacoustic detection and an external cavity quantum cascade laser (ECQCL) was realized and characterized for acetone measurement. Photoacoustic signal dependence on gas pressure and laser operating parameters were studied to optimize sensor performance. In addition, potential approaches and detection schemes on improving sensor performance were also discussed.
