Contract: NNX11CE88P
Award Amount: $100,000.00
 

Abstract:

Formaldehyde (HCHO) is of great interest to atmospheric scientists in NASA and other research institutions. In this SBIR project, we propose to build an airborne or ground based, atmospheric formaldehyde (HCHO) profiler implementing Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) techniques. The instrument will be able to operate under the range of environmental conditions encountered during ground and airborne tests. In the phase I effort, we will breadboard system and perform a proof of concept HCHO measurement. We will also carry out a comprehensive review of the UV laser systems and identify the optimum laser for the prototype sensor. The outcome of the Phase I work will establish the feasibility of this LIF technique for high sensitivity detection of HCHO, and provide the design of the prototype sensor.
