This paper presents application of Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CRDS) and Cavity Enhanced Spectroscopic (CEAS) techniques with blue laser diodes-based system for nitrogen dioxide (NO2) detection. CES technique bases on integration of the light from a resonator. Since the integrated intensity is proportional to the decay time, the experimental signal can be related to the absorption process. The minimum detectable concentration of the absorber for a specific transition is inversely proportional to the effective sample-path length, and directly proportional to the minimum intensity fluctuation detected by a receiving system. In the presented system, the blue laser diode was mounted in a temperature-controlled housing. The light transmitted through the cavity was focused onto a PMT of H5783-03 type. The detector signal enters a lock-in amplifier and next a computer with a 16-bit data acquisition board.
