Paper Abstract

A multi-component Fourier Transform InfraRed (FTIR) gas analyzer with a low spectral resolution (8cm-1) is described in this paper. The hardware of this analyzer is consisting of a rugged Fourier Transform Spectrometer (FTS), an uncooled pyroelectric Deuterated L-Alanine TriGlycine Sulfate (DLATGS) detector, a glass body long-path gas cell and relevant sampling devices. The transplantable software and algorithms include the building of spectral library from the free sources such as EPA, NIST, HITRAN etc, identification of spectrum components and a modified classical least square regression with automatic baseline compensation. In order to validate this system, we implemented a continuous on-line experiment using the 55 μmol·mol-1 methane and 28 μmol·mol-1 nitrous oxide standard mixtures. The experimental results show this low resolution analyzer has accuracy and robust analysis abilities. The description in this paper is helpful to facilitate the development of a FTIR multi-component gas analyzer.
