This thesis discusses four major projects performed at the University of Denver utilizing high-speed infrared spectroscopy for gas phase detection of CO2 and other species. One project was performed for ADA-ES based in Littleton, Colorado as an investigation of potential new materials (or novel combinations of existing materials) for the capture of carbon dioxide in flue gases emitted by power plants. A second project uses traditional remote sensing instrumentation developed at DU to create a modified fast-response continuous remote sensor that can be placed at one side of the road. Hopes are to ultimately couple this technology with other detectors (i.e. PM detectors) to monitor species which cannot currently be quantified using across-the-road techniques. Third, a series of tests was performed on FEAT instruments to make them easier to use. And finally, a study of diesel truck emissions was performed in California and findings are presented and compared to new EPA standards.(2007) provide their method in excellent detail. A commercially available particle counter (TSI 3025A) with a reported response time of alt;1 second in a high-flow mode (instruction manual) was set up ... time writing data at 1Hz. Their initial tests were performed with a Toyota Landcruiser on a straight, level track with a steady 7.
