CE-DOAS at its Detection Limit
by Henning Finkenzeller - 1st Year Graduate Student, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of Colorado Boulder
Cavity Enhanced Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy (CE-DOAS) is an established method for the in-situ measurement of trace gas concentrations. Its detection limit is often not determined by noise but systematical effects.
I comment on the combined effect of high frequency intensity variations and the non-linearity of the spectrometer in intensity space on the detection limit, which is estimated from model calculations.
