Abstract

A sensor for measurement of vapors from the hydrocarbon-based fuels JP-8, DF-2, and gasoline is described. The sensor is based upon a previously reported laser mixing technique that uses two tunable diode lasers emitting in the near-infrared spectral region. Limits of detection are reported. Improvements to be incorporated in the next generation of the sensor are discussed.
