Development of Techniques for Trace Gas Detection in Breath

Abstract:

This thesis aims to investigate the possibility of developing spectroscopic techniques for trace gas detection, with particular emphasis on their applicability to breath analysis and medical diagnostics. Whilst key breath molecules such as methane and carbon dioxide will feature throughout this work, the focus of the research is on the detection of breath acetone, a molecule strongly linked with the diabetic condition.

Preliminary studies into the suitability of cavity enhanced abso...
