Absorption measurements using frequency modulation heterodyne spectroscopy

View publication


Direct absorption. measurements using Frequency. Modulation. Spectroscopy (FMS) have been made. Simple calibration is possible and DC absorptions as small as 1.4x10-4 may be detected. By modulating the absorption photochemically, the sensitivity may be extended to a lower limit of1.5x10-7. The radicals HCO1 and ND4 have been studied using this method. © 1983 SPIE.
