Abstract:

In this SBIR Phase I research effort, Los Gatos Research (LGR) proposes to develop an ultrasensitive diagnostic for EOIL applications. The instrument, which will be based on LGR's proprietary Off-Axis cavity-enhanced technology, will be capable of providing highly accurate, in situ quantification of oxygen (X, a, b), O atoms, ozone, and NO using a variety of near-infrared and visible absorption transitions. In Phase I, sensitive cavity-enhanced measurements will be combined with spectroscopic theory to evaluate the technical feasibility of exploiting quadrupole transitions for oxygen monitoring, visible transitions for O atom quantification, Off-Axis Cavity Ringdown Spectroscopy for ozone measurements, and near-infrared transitions for nitric oxide determinations. The prospect of employing near-UV, solid state diode lasers will also be investigated, with final Phase I work focusing on selecting an optimal measurement strategy and designing a Phase II prototype.
