Paper Abstract

A new data analysis is proposed for the calculation of quantitative infrared (I.R.) spectra by the photoacoustic (P.A.) method. The theoretical P.A. signal components inquadrature and in-phase with the modulated I.R. excitation exhibit intrinsic variations in function of the variable Op. The identification of such a behavior in the experimental data permits to avoid the signal amplitude saturation and the determination of an external signal phase reference, two common problems in P.A. spectroscopy. The proposed data manipulation leads to the calculation of a quantitative sample spectrum. This is illustrated by an experimental example.
