摘要：Efforts were made in this study to evaluate a series of pivotal techniques in standard quartz tuning fork (QTF) based quartz enhanced photoacoustic spectroscopy (QEPAS) systems for engineering applications. In current QEPAS systems, a scanning ramp combined with high frequency sinusoidal signal is used to drive the light source for photoacoustic excitation, the scanning cycle was optimized for the first time in experiments guaranteeing that photoacoustic energy accumulation finished to achieve the largest photoacoustic signal, and the optimum modulation index was verified by experiments to be similar to 5 instead of the simulated result 2.2. As an important step for engineering applications, a long-term (similar to 8 months) experiment was also carried out to evaluate the stability of QTF's property. In addition, several photoacoustic spectrophone configurations were compared in the optimum geometry parameters, dual-tubes on beam was verified in experiments to be the most efficient one compared with half on-beam and off-beam structures in standard QTF based systems, which is consist with the summary of published papers.
