Abstract

A visible and near-infrared (0.36–3-μm) Michelson interferometer has been built to perform Fourier transform photoacoustic spectroscopy. The scanning (step and integrate) and the internal modulation are obtained with only one active element: the moving mirror holder driven by a linear motor. The signal-to-noise improvement and the performance of the spectrometer are compared with other photoacoustic methods and illustrated by various spectra.
