Simultaneous atmospheric C1-C3 detection with compact midinfrared laser sensor

Natural Gas Initiative

Ronald Hanson, Mechanical Engineering; Robert Jackson, Earth System Science

The project goal is development of a laser-based instrument for field monitoring of methane, ethane, and propane in the atmosphere. The sensor will feature a new signal-processing technique that will eliminate noise and interference. After development and testing in the lab, the new sensor will be deployed for field trials in San Francisco.
