Paper Abstract

Lock-in amplifiers are a powerful tool for signal detection within a noise environment. Commercial Lock-in amplifiers are bulky and disqualified for handheld operation. We report recent progress on FPGA based lock-in real-time detection scheme with the application in Quartz-Enhanced-Photo-Acoustic Spectroscopy (QEPAS). The new QEPAS configuration is tested and verified on a fast Methane detection scheme in the 1650 nm spectral regime. The novel FPGA detection scheme can be easily transferred into other spectral regimes and offers the opportunity of multi-species real-time measurements.
