Monitoring the concentration of gaseous O(2), CO(2) and CH(4) is needed for many environmental, medical and industrial applications. We model the COSM method of correlation spectroscopy, where two broadband light sources are intensity modulated in antiphase, the first being directed via the measurement cell after first passing through the reference sample, the second being more directly-coupled. The subsequent difference in fractional attenuation in the measurement cell indicates the concentration of target gas in this cell. Using data from the HITRAN database, comprehensive analyses are presented to predict the optical modulation index and the signal to noise ratio at the detector, as a function of optical filter properties, and for various gas temperatures and pressures (concentrations). The predicted detection sensitivities are presented for each gas.

Abstract

Monitoring the concentration of gaseous O(2), CO(2) and CH(4) is needed for many environmental, medical and industrial applications. We model the COSM method of correlation spectroscopy, where two broadband light sources are intensity modulated in antiphase, the first being directed via the measurement cell after first passing through the reference sample, the second being more directly-coupled. The subsequent difference in fractional attenuation in the measurement cell indicates the concentration of target gas in this cell. Using data from the HITRAN database, comprehensive analyses are presented to predict the optical modulation index and the signal to noise ratio at the detector, as a function of optical filter properties, and for various gas temperatures and pressures (concentrations). The predicted detection sensitivities are presented for each gas.
