Advances in Ammonia Detection Systems
This Phase II SBIR Research project will continue the development and testing of an innovative instrument for measuring fluxes of atmospheric ammonia to be delivered at the end of Phase II. The instrument will combine advances in diode laser technology with sophisticated laser modulation methods to quantify ammonia in a low pressure flow cell. The instrumentÂ¿s small size and light weight will allow it to be mounted close to the measurement point, eliminating the need for long sampling lines. Careful selection of materials and a rapid flow rate ensure rapid gas exchange. Custom electronics to operate the instrument will consume 1-5 W of electrical power.
