Abstract

The need for innovative solutions in air compliance monitoring is becoming an increasing concern to Government and Industry due in large part to the regulations promulgated by the 1990 Amended Clean Air Act. Efforts are underway at CCNY in collaboration with the DuPont Company to develop a cost effective and practical solid-state laser based air pollution monitoring system for the control and measurement of hazardous air toxins in urban and industrial environments. A general discussion of the CCNY-DuPont project and the utilization of DIAL in air monitoring applications as required by the Clean Air Act are discussed.
