Integrating cavity ring-down spectroscopy (ICRDS) and the direct measurement of absorption coefficients Academic Article uri icon


  • 2016 The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences Printed in the UK. Absorption of light at various wavelengths (i.e. absorption spectroscopy) is a powerful tool for identifying the presence of chemical compounds or specific substances in a sample. Cavity ring down spectroscopy (CRDS) is a well-known technique for very high sensitivity absorption spectroscopy. Another technique, integrating cavity spectroscopy has the additional unique feature of providing accurate absorption data even in the presence of severe scattering. This paper describes a combination of these two techniques that has led to an extremely powerful and useful new technology-integrating CRDS.
