Atmospheric pollution is one of the worst threats to modern society. The consequences derived from different forms of atmospheric pollution vary from the local to the global scale, with deep impacts on climate, environment and human health. Several gaseous pollutants, even when present in trace concentrations, play a fundamental role in important processes that occur in atmosphere. Phenomena such as global warming, photochemical smog formation, acid rain and the depletion of the stratospheric… 
Detection of Ethylene Emitted by Diesel-biodiesel Engine Using CO2 Laser Photoacoustic Sensors
The increased use of modern society vehicles is rising the pollutant gas emissions causing several environmental and public health problem in urban centers. Diesel fuel is a major emitter of
Detection of gaseous pollutants emitted from engine powered by biodiesel and diesel mixtures
Nowadays air pollution has been regarded as a serious environmental problem. One of the main generators of air pollution is the transportation, since the gas combustion from various chemical species
Quantum cascade laser photoacoustic detection of nitrous oxide released from soils for biofuel production
