Fast-response concentration measurement of bromotrifluoromethane using a quantum cascade laser (QCL) at 8.280 μm.

Abstract

In this study, a measurement system for a gaseous fire extinguisher bromotrifluoromethane (Halon 1301) was developed, using a quantum cascade laser (QCL) at ~8.280 μm. The performance parameters of this system were also analyzed. Much higher sensitivity and faster response time were achieved compared to non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) sensors and differential-pressure method. A response time of 90 ms from 0% to the targeted concentration 6% was obtained. The detection limit of 500 ppm was obtained with a short optical path length of 2.8 mm. In conclusion, the proposed system can be applied in the airworthiness certification test of an aircraft fire suppression system.
