Abstract: We demonstrate a fiber-tip photoacoustic spectrometric sensor for trace gas detection. The sensor head is a miniature fiber-tip hollow-cavity with a deflectable polymer diaphragm. Periodic light absorption of gas molecules within the cavity generates an acoustic pressure wave, which causes deflection of the diaphragm. The hollow cavity also is a Fabry–Perot interferometer with which the diaphragm deflection is detected with high sensitivity. Experimental test around the P(9) absorption line of C₂H₂ achieved a minimum detectable gas concentration of 4.3 ppm with an excitation laser power of 8 mW. The miniature sensor head and fiber optic detection system make this type of spectrometers ideally suited for remote and space-limited applications as well as for multipoint detection in a multiplexed fiber optic sensor network.
