Abstract

In this paper, we propose signal-processing tools adapted to supercontinuum absorption spectroscopy, in order to predict the precision of gas species concentration estimation. These tools are based on Cramer–Rao bounds computations. A baseline-insensitive concentration estimation algorithm is proposed. These calculations are validated by statistical tests on simulated supercontinuum signals as well as experimental data using a near-infrared supercontinuum laser and a grating spectrometer.
