Top notch design for fiber-loop cavity ring-down spectroscopy.
Fiber-loop cavity ring-down spectroscopy (CRDS) is a highly sensitive spectroscopic absorption technique which has shown considerable promise for the analysis of small-volume liquid samples. We have developed a new light coupling method for fiber-loop CRDS, which overcomes two disadvantages of the technique: low efficiency light coupling into the cavity and high loss per pass. The coupler is based on a 45° reflective notch polished between 10 and 30 μm into the core of a large-core-diameter (...Expand abstract
