[Trace detection of ammonia at 1.531 microm].


A compact instrument based on the off-axis integrated-cavity output spectroscopy (ICOS) technology was developed for sensitive measurements of gas mixing ratios (ammonia in air) at room temperature by using fiber-coupled distributed feedback (DFB) diode laser operating at 1.531 microm. The absorption line of ammonia at 6 528.764 cm(-1) was chosen for trace… (More)
