Carvalho, J.P.; Lehmann, H.; Bartelt, H.; Magalhães, F.; Amezcua-Correa, R.; Santos, J.L. ; writing—original draft preparation, K.C., Y.C. Sensirion has introduced a miniaturized CO 2 sensor device based on photoacoustic sensing. The sensor (1) has a measuring cell (2), a lamp (3), a photodiode (17), a gas permeable membrane (7) and a microphone (6). Photoacoustic spectroscopy has become a powerful technique to study concentrations of gases at the part per billion or even part per trillion levels. Schilt [, In summary, a PA microcavity sensor was proposed and developed for gas leak detection with the advantages of high sensitivity, low power, and low cost. The sensor measures two measurement ranges simultaneously: The monitoring of the indoor air quality and the detection of possible leakages of the coolant in CO 2 air-conditioning systems. The sensor consists of a miniaturized innovative photoacoustic sensor unit with integrated electronics. In an arrangement where a sensor is placed in a gaseous phase above the sample and the light impinges the sample from above, the photoacoustic signal results from an absorption zone close to the surface. ; investigation, K.C., Y.C., Z.G., and Q.Y. Different from traditional PA sensors, the designed low-power sensor had no gas valves and pumps. Kuusela, T.; Kauppinen, J. Photoacoustic gas analysis using interferometric cantilever microphone.
