Quantitative Measurement of Ethane Using Mid-infrared Cavity Ring-down Spectroscopy

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Quantitative measurement of trace ethane is important in environmental science and biomedical applications. For these applications, we typically require a few tens of part-per-trillion level measurement sensitivity. To measure trace-level ethane, we constructed a cavity ring-down spectroscopy setup in the 3.37 μm mid-infrared wavelength range, which is applicable to multi-species chemical analysis. We demonstrated that the detection limit of ethane is approximately 300 parts per trillion, and the measured concentration is in agreement with the amounts of the injected sample. We expect that these results can be applied to the chemical analysis of ethane and applications such as breath test equipment.
