Abstract

Low concentrations of SO2 IN AIR WERE MEASURED USING A Stark modulated microwave spectrometer. Measurement of the intensity of absorption lines for rotational transitions gives a quantitative measure of the concentration of specific small molecules. Concentrations of 20 ppm of SO2 in air were easily detected with a signal to noise ratio of over 20/1 with a 5 sec time constant using a straight forward sample concentration technique.
