Frustrated total internal reflection based sensor for cavity ring down spectroscopy


Homeland Security applications require spectroscopic remote sensing. Contract work has indicated the potential for sampling into a Cavity Ring Down based spectroscopic sensor. Potential contamination issues have led to the development of a frustrated total internal reflection, surface absorption technique to protect the cavity finesse. Autonomous vehicle power, weight and dimensional limitations require the reduction of cavity baseline. © 2009 IEEE.
