ABSTRACT
We present a miniature prototype of a resonance photoacoustic cell with a banana-shaped internal cavity with a volume of less than ∼5 mm. The cell design and the experimental setup used for testing operational characteristics of the prototype are described. The results of testing the prototype in the experiments on photoacoustic detection of radiation absorption by ammonia in a nitrogen flow by using a single-mode diode laser generating radiation near ∼1.53 μm are presented. The amplitude-frequency characteristic of the photoacoustic response induced by absorption of radiation in the presence and absence of ammonia is analyzed. The experiment revealed that sensitivity of gas sensing is limited only by the microphone noise. The measured noise-limited minimal detectable absorption was found to be about 8.48 × 10 cm W Hz.
