Abstract

A pulsed laser photoacoustic measurement technique, utilising laser diode sources, has been developed for the detection of oil contamination in water. The measurement of oil-contaminated water samples of oil concentration ranging from 0 to 900 mg 1-1 is presented. Also reported are results from a theoretical modelling, which includes several experimental factors important to the photoacoustic sensor design for this type of application. © 1995.
