Abstract
Measurements of small absorption coefficients of weakly absorbing or trace gas in the atmosphere has been one of the most important applications of photoacoustic devices. Normally, the major factor limiting the sensitivity of these systems is the spurious signal produced by the heating of the cell windows. We present a simple photoacoustic configuration that eliminate the spurious window and external background signals and enhance the main (real) signal of infrared gaseous photoacoustic systems, optimizing the signal to noise ratio.
