Chemiluminescence Analysis

A method of detection where a chemical reaction generates a small amount of light(photons).
This method is often used to measure total NOx. The NO2 & NO3 within the sample gas is converted to NO via a heated carbon converter. The NO is then mixed with O3 within a reaction chamber. The amount of photons released during the reaction is proportional to the concentration of NOx in a sample stream.
