Frequency modulation detection of NH2 in shock tube experiments is demonstrated with sensitivities of 0.5 ppm in a single pass and 0.25 ppm in a double pass configuration. This corresponds to a minimum detectable absorption of 0.01% and 0.005%, respectively, which represents an improvement of more than a factor of 20 when compared to conventional laser absorption detection. The feasibility of the frequency modulation detection system for quantitative absolute concentration measurements is demonstrated using CH3NH2 as a precursor for the preparation of known NH2 concentrations.
