Abstract


We have developed a simple, low cost, and compact NO2 detection system. It’s based on photoacoustic spectroscopy (PAS) method uses a diode laser as a source of radiation. The PAS system has a detection limit of 10 ppbv for NO2. With this set-up we were able to detect the NO2 concentration from urban air near our campus. We have also investigated the NO2 dissociation effect on the PAS system via NO measurements using a direct absorption spectroscopy method on quantum cascade laser (QCL) system.
