Abstract :

In this work an acetylene sensor based on a tunable fiber laser and a correlation spectroscopy stage is presented. Here, it is shown that to implement a gas concentration sensor it is necessary that the fiber laser emission sweeps a fraction of the spectral region where one rovibrational absorption gas line occurs. Moreover, as the fiber laser only interacts with one absorption line of the target molecule, the selectivity of the sensor is very high. Furthermore, it is demonstrated that when the fiber laser emission fluctuated, the measurement errors were minimized by taking advantage of one correlation spectroscopy technique for which two optical channels were implemented. Numerical simulations describing the sensor principle of operation are provided and these are strongly supported by experimental measurements, which gives confidence that this methodology can be applied to design other gas sensors.
