Abstract

Calibration of laser induced fluorescence (LIF) instruments that measure OH is challenging because it is difficult to reliably introduce a known amount of this reactive radical into a measurement apparatus. In a recent paper, Hofzumahaus et al., [1996] describe a novel and seemingly simple technique to accomplish this goal: they dissociate trace quantities of water vapor in air with a low pressure mercury (Hg) lamp to produce low concentrations (10^5 - 10^9 cm^(-3)) of OH (R1).
