Chemical sensing and analyses of samples by laser spectroscopic methods are attractive owing to several advantages such as high sensitivity and specificity, large dynamic range, multi-component capability, and lack of pretreatment or preconcentration procedures.
The preferred wavelength range comprises the fundamental molecular absorption range in the mid-infrared between 3 and 15 ?m. The availability of broadly tunable mid-infrared sources like external cavity quantum cascade lasers (EC-QCLs), interband cascade lasers (ICLs), difference frequency generation (DFG), optical parametric oscillators (OPOs), recent developments of diode-pumped lead salt semiconductor lasers, of supercontinuum sources or of frequency combs have eased the implementation of laser-based sensing devices.
Sensitive techniques for molecular absorption measurements include multipass absorption, various configurations of cavity-enhanced techniques such as cavity ringdown (CRD), or of photoacoustic spectroscopy (PAS) including quartz-enhanced (QEPAS) or cantilever-enhanced (CEPAS) techniques. The application requirements finally determine the optimum selection of laser source and detection scheme.
After a brief introduction on some key issues, various experimental setups and the performance of selected systems for chemical sensing of selected atmospheric species will be discussed. Applications include an early example of continuous vehicle emission measurements with a mobile CO_2-laser PAS system [1], measurements on short-lived species like nitrous acid (HONO) with a QCL-based QEPAS system [2], isotope measurements in human breath [3], a true analysis of gas mixtures with a widely tunable DFG system in a medical application [4], as well as the fast analysis of C_1-C_4 alkanes at sub-ppm concentrations with a new type of mid-infrared diode-pumped piezoelectrically tuned lead salt VECSEL [5].
Finally, a new approach for the non-invasive in vivo detection of glucose in the interstitial fluid in the epidermal layer of human skin is presented. It is based on QCL absorption of glucose and photoacoustic detection with a special PA cell in direct contact with skin [6].
