Abstract
Since the water resource is being seriously polluted with the development of the human society, the monitoring of the available water resource is an impending task. The concentration of the dissolved organic matter, oxygen and inorganic salt in water can be checked by means of some methods, e.g. electrolysis, electrochemical method, colorimetry. But because some drawbacks are existed in these methods, the laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) spectrophotometry method is adopted into this paper. And a novel LIF spectrophotometer for water quality monitor (WQM) is designed. In this WQM, the 3rd harmonic of the Q switched Nd:YAG laser is used as the induced fluorescence light-source. And for the splitting-light system of the spectrophotometer for WQM, in order to improve the resolution and light-passing efficiency, a novel volume holography transmissive(VHT) grating is used as the diffraction grating instead of the plane or holography grating. Meanwhile, the linear CCD with combined data acquisition (DAQ) card is used as the fluorescence spectral detection system and virtual instrument (VI) technology based on LabVIEW is used to control the spectral acquisition and analysis. Experimental results show that the spatial resolution of the novel spectrophotometer for WQM is improved, its resolution can reach 2nm. And the checking accuracy of this WQM is higher than others. Therefore, the novel LIF spectrophotometer for WQM has the potential value in the water quality monitoring and biochemical application.
