Abstract

A gas filter correlation (GFC) instrument for air monitoring at submillimeter wavelengths has been developed. We used a high-power terahertz radiation source in combination with a specific gas filter cell to obtain a highly selective instrument to differentiate species present in an unknown mixture. This approach provides a new method for survey measurements in the spectrum from 100 to 1000  GHz, in which many molecular rotational lines appear. Basic operational considerations and preliminary experiments with hydrogen sulfide are described.
