Paper Abstract

A VDI/DIN guideline for passive FTIR spectrometry is under development. The topics will be: Basics of the techniques: principles for the detection of gaseous clouds and exhaust composition, radiative transfer model, radiative temperature, noise equivalent column density and detection limits; Measurement systems: Fourier transform spectroscopy, Michelson interferometers, measurement configurations, spectrometers with one detector element, scanning systems, scanning imaging systems, spectrometers with a detector array; Calibration: radiometric calibration, system calibration; Remote sensing of gases at ambient temperature: basics, identification of gases, quantifications, application examples; Remote sensing of gases at high temperatures: basics, quantification of gas temperature, quantification of composition, application examples; Remote sensing of gases by means of solar radiation: basics, measurement performance, data analyses, application examples.
