LONG PATH MEASUREMENT OF ATMOSPHERIC TRACE GASES BY INFRARED ABSORPTION TECHNIQUES
The application of long path infrared absorption technique for the monitoring of atmospheric trace gases is reviewed. After introductory remarks on the infrared technique, the long path monitors developed are analyzed and their state of the art presented. The tunable semiconductor diode laser, the line tunable gas laser and the Fourier Transform Spectrometer are considered with particular emphasis on the first one. Concluding comments are given on the role and perspectives of monitors based on long path infrared absorption.
