Abstract

Simultaneous detection of multiple-gas species has for the first time (to our knowledge) been demonstrated by using a multimode diode-laser-based correlation spectroscopy (MDL-COSPEC) scheme. Concentration measurements of a mixture of CO2 and CO gas were performed by probing overlapping line spectra around 1.57μm using an MDL. Species identification and corresponding quantitive analysis were implemented by correlating the recorded absorption signals of the sample gas mixtures with those of the reference gases of particular interest, attaining accuracies of 2% and 1%, respectively. MDL-COSPEC is a generic technique with potential application for simultaneous detection of multiple gases having resolvable narrow lines.
