Recently, results for the CO(2) R(12) line strength parameter have been reported, which differ significantly and are inconsistent with respect to quoted uncertainties. We investigate to what extent this inconsistency might be caused by the chosen data analysis methods. To this end, we assess and compare a parametric fitting procedure and a non-parametric(More)
We report a new direct tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (dTDLAS) sensor for absolute measurements of H2O in methane, ethane, propane, and low CO2 natural gas. The sensor is operated with a 2.7 µm DFB laser, equipped with a high pressure single pass gas cell, and used to measure H2O amount of substance fractions in the range of 0.31-25 000(More)
We report on an interband cascade laser (ICL)-absorption spectrometer for absolute, calibration-free, atmospheric CO amount fraction measurements, addressing direct traceability of the results. The system combines first-principles direct tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (dTDLAS) with a metrological validation. Using a multipath cell with 76 m(More)
Nitrous oxide (N<sub>2</sub>O) is a key greenhouse gas and a major ozone-depleting anthropogenic pollutant monitored by the total carbon column observing network (TCCON) in the 00<sup>0</sup>2-00<sup>0</sup>0-band of its main isotopologue. Here, we present highly accurate line strengths for this window determined using Fourier transform infrared(More)
Simultaneous detection of two analytes, carbon dioxide (CO2) and water vapor (H2O), has been realized using tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS) with a single distributed feedback diode laser at 2.7 μm. The dynamic range of the spectrometer is extended from the low parts per million to the percentage range using two gas cells, a single-pass(More)
