Abstract
Laser photoacoustic spectroscopy (LPAS) is one of the most sensitive calorimetric techniques that consists in energy conversion from modulated excitation radiation (laser) to sound energy and it is due to nonradiative transitions that convert a part of absorbed energy into thermal energy. The temperature variations then determine the formation of acoustic waves. At the wavelengths of the CO2 laser (9-11 μm), more than two hundred of molecular gases can be detected with a system based on photoacoustic (PA) spectroscopy, at concentrations as low as ppb or even ppt.
