We present model for determination of performance of optical sensor that takes into account fine structure of gas absorption band and specific features of immersion lens LEDs and photodiodes operating in the mid-IR spectral range (3-5 mum). The model incorporates an instrument and transfer functions that enables evaluation of accuracy, sensitivity and limit… CONTINUE READING
