New method for measuring low NO concentrations using laser induced two photon ionization
Review of Scientific Instruments
A new method based on laser induced two photon ionization was developed for detection of low levels of NO concentration in the troposphere. A frequency-doubled pulsed dye laser operating at near 226 nm was used to photoionize NO by a (1ϩ1) resonance enhanced two photon ionization via its A 2 ⌺←X 2 ⌸(0,0) band. NO ions are detected by an electron multiplier. Air gas samples are injected through a pulsed nozzle into a vacuum chamber.
