Paper Abstract

A new atmospheric NO2 monitor with a detectability of O. 6 ppbv is described. A compact He-Cd 10 mIN 442nm laser excites the NO2 molecules and the resultant fluorescence was monitored by photon counting over an 80 sec integration time. The high sensitivity was achieved by development of an optimal NO2 fluorescence bandpass liquid solution filter which did not fluoresce upon absorption of scattered laser light.
