Tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS) based optical fiber methane sensing technology has a number of advantages compared with conventional electronic methane sensor device, such as high Precision, passive and intrinsically safe in explosive and hazardous environment as well as immune to electro-magnetic interference. In order to accurately measure the oxidation rate of coal mine ventilation air methane oxidizer system, and Meet requirements for accurate measurements to the oxidizer exhaust emissions, A Fiber optic methane monitor based on Distributed feedback tunable diode (DFB) laser of 1.65um central wavelength is demonstrated. We use a reflective chamber of only a 10cm effective optical path as sensing gas cell. By the data processing of fitting baseline method, we remove the effect of the baseline tilt of background Spectral. The system achieves 0 to 0.1% measure range and 5.8*10E-6 minimum detection sensitivity, and meets the requirements of high accuracy, real-time measure to the oxidizer exhaust emissions.
