Paper Abstract

Methane (CH4), a key greenhouse by influencing tropospheric ozone (O3) and stratospheric water vapor (H2O), plays an important role on the process of global warming and climate change. In this paper, we report on the development of a gas sensing technique based on high sensitive tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS). A room-temperature distributed-feedback (DFB) diode laser near 1653 nm is used to excite the rotational-vibrational absorption line of CH4 molecule. Direct absorption spectroscopy and wavelength modulation spectroscopy were used for investigating methane molecular line parameters and sensing gas concentration, respectively. Moreover, potential strategies for sensitivity improvement are also discussed.
